Google announces three third-party speakers with Assistant, plus LG appliance integration

Google Assistant coming to more speakers and home appliances from LG

The first three speakers confirmed for this roll out are the Zolo Mojo from Anker, Mobvoi's TicHome Mini, and the GA10 by Panasonic. Google has announced that Google Assistant is coming to connected speakers from Mobvoi, Anker, Panasonic, and that appliances from LG will come later this year.

LG is the first appliance maker announced to be supporting Google Assistant.

Beginning later this year with manufacturers like LG, the Google Assistant will control appliances such as washers, dryers, or vacuums from the smart speaker, Android phone or iPhone, or any other device with which Google Assistant connects.

These devices can deliver the functionality and features of the Google Home exactly as it gets available in countries like the Canada, the USA, the Australia, the France and the Germany. Taneja says that Google Assistant will function "just about the same" across these third-party speakers as it does elsewhere, so don't expect any major differences if you're jumping from Google Home or Android. What a time to be alive.

Heavy, tropical rain headed to NC coast; Tropical storm warning in effect
In addition to the tropical storm warning, 15 counties are under a flash flood watch until Tuesday afternoon. The heavier rains may result in some flooding concerns along coastal areas north of Charleston.

There's not much information known about the three speakers announced, the Mobvoi TicHome Mini will be splashproof with a 6-hour battery life and available in 5 colours.

The Echo Dot's low price tag has helped Amazon dominate the smart-home market, too, because you can put one in two rooms for the price of one Google Home. The company revealed that a lot of new speakers will get the digital assistant. "Ok Google, are my clothes clean?" or "is the laundry done?" On the top of the device you've got buttons for cycling through the various inputs, which include Bluetooth and a 3.5mm aux input. And, aside from featuring Google Assistant, this speaker from Anker also has Google Cast in addition to WiFi and Bluetooth. It means that it can talk smart and it is more like a person that you are talking to than just a flat, companion without brains or emotions. Because of that, it paves the way for a two-way conversation interaction between the user and the handset. This feature brings the power of machine learning to bear on the chat app.

Many people who use Google Assistant regularly probably already have a Google Home, but offering options for newcomers to the ecosystem certainly isn't a bad thing.
