The Latest in Google Home
Amazon’s Echo Show was the first smart home device in its class. It offers the benefits of a smart speaker while functioning as a quality touch screen display.
But now Google is planning to give the Echo Show a run for its money by creating its very own smart display as a part of the Google Home family.
Critics are wondering how Google will make their new device unique from the Lenovo Smart Display with Google. Sources say that they have big plans for the device, although Google has not released any details about the device yet. Excited users are already hoping that Google will add more versatility to the device.
The Lenovo Smart Display with Google functions mainly in landscape mode. Users are hoping that the new Smart Display will be able to support a variety of functions in both portrait and landscape mode.
Users would also like to see a sleeker design than on the Lenovo display. The left side speaker makes the device wider, taking up more valuable counter space than necessary.
Some users would even like to see the device connect to their thermostat, allowing them to change heating and air settings right from their smart display.
Whatever Google releases, it is bound to be successful. Nearly 30% of U.S. households use a smart speaker to streamline their lives. Adding a screen to their next device will add even more productivity to their already useful Google Home collection.
