Dish Adding Google Assistant Capabilities

Dish Adding Google Assistant Capabilities

Smart display devices that are equipped with voice assistants could drive greater usage of smart speakers overall. There are smart Samsung and LG fridges that can provide that info, but there's no easy way to plug that into my chosen Google ecosystem. "We're pleased to be working with the Google Assistant to offer our customers the ability to control Hopper's video experiences through the Assistant on speakers and phones".

Already Samsung has revealed plans for a Bixby speaker to take on Apple's HomePod, Amazon's Echo and Google's Home.

Google claims that you can now perform more than a million actions with Google Assistant. But Park's approach serves as an apt warning for both consumer electronic companies and consumers: Be careful what you hype up and make sure there's some practical benefit. Google Glass itself may make a return of sorts in the enterprise market. JBL says it is the frist smart speaker to incorporate the Google Assistant with an 8-inch visual display with a touch screen and 5MP front facing camera. In other words, Klipsch's Heritage Wireless The Three will be a larger, stereo tabletop smart speaker that also features an integrated subwoofer for enhanced bass.

Google is gradually expanding its voice assistant service to more and more devices and platforms.

TVs are also a next big bet. Scott Huffman, vice president of engineering for Google Assistant, showed up to talk about the search giant's relationship with LG, and how it's expanded from Android phones to appliances and televisions over the past year and a half. And Google Assistant will be chatting in your ear through headphones from Sony and Jaybird, among others.

The first of the Qualcomm Home Hub platforms for Android Things, based on the SDA212 SoC, is created to enable home devices and appliances such as refrigerators, ovens and washing machines with digital assistant and audio capability. After bringing Alexa voice control to its services back in May, Dish announced today that it will be doing the same with Google's AI offering.
