A new mercenary joins the fray in Google’s war efforts for domination of your house. It’s the Google Assistant with a screen and the search engine giant’s answer to Amazon’s Echo Show. Lenovo teamed up with Google on this and although it doesn’t have the sexiest of names, it has all the hallmarks of a “Made by Google” device, which is great. Meet the Lenovo Smart Display.
Y’know, because it’s a display and it’s smart.
But Google has a solution. They’re a pair of wireless earbuds called the Pixel Buds and although these buds look like your normal Jaybird or Jabra buds, these puppies have one kickass feature that may just give us a glimpse into the future: Real-time translation right in your ear.
At the Google I/O 2017, Google announced a whole bunch of new updates for their favourite AI, the Google Assistant. But they also announced something that many probably didn’t expect: The Google Assistant can now help you from your iPhone.
Oh boy, I wonder how Siri feels about this.
What do you do when you’re the best in the world at something? Well, if you’re HTC, apparently, you stop doing it because, with the company’s brand new HTC U11 smartphone, it looks like the Taiwanese tech giant is putting the final nail in the coffin for their metal-bodied flagship devices.
Thankfully, the other stuff on the HTC U11 looks pretty good.
Meet Bixby, Samsung’s very own personal assistant AI program that will make its debut on the new Galaxy S flagship. And they’re promising the world with this one.
Smartphones and virtual reality were not the only things Google showed off at their #madebygoogle event. The tech giant also unveiled a brand new Chromecast, Google WiFi and officially launched the familiar Google Home.
UPDATE: Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL are official! Read all about it here.
