TiVo Adds Alexa, Google Assistant Control to its DVRs

TiVo Adds Alexa, Google Assistant Control to its DVRs

If you look at Alexa, you can only control via Amazon Echo smart speakers. JBL comes in second, with their Link View Smart Display. It has impressive stereo speakers of its own, tuned by Meridian Audio, but it stands out with an 8” touchscreen. The on-screen display can let you know if a home security camera detects motion, or when a smart lock is unlocked (if the camera or lock are compatible with IFTTT).

LG Electronics is developing technology created to enable its appliances, televisions and other devices adapt to users and collaborate to handle tasks. We will continue to roll out the Assistant to existing Android TVs such as AirTV Player, Bouygues Telecom, LG U+, TCL, Skyworth and Xiaomi.

"Google Assistant will follow you, from your phone...or from future headphones that will have a voice assistant built in".

Smart home device maker Insteon has partnered up with Google Assistant for a new range of voice-activated home systems, announced by the company on Monday.

2018, Microsoft dashed rumors about axing the consumer-facing portion of Cortana and confirmed that the digital assistant will be made available on more devices in 2018. New survey data from The Smart Audio Report also reveals how voice-activation in the home is fueling adoption of smart technology broadly and affecting how often consumers engage with other platforms throughout the day.

The LG ThinQ WK9 is most likely powered by Qualcomm's SD624 Home Hub Platform, as seen in Lenovo's and JBL's variants and we can expect it to be an industry standard of sorts until better hardware is released.
