CES 2018: JBL Adds Smart Speaker With Display To Link Family

AMAZON continues to dominate the category, as over two-thirds of smart speaker owners have an Echo, Dot or other Alexa-based product.

B&O also announced AirPlay 2 support is coming to 10 devices including the Beoplay M3, M5 and A9 mk2 and Beosound range.

Aside from the Lenovo Smart Display and the JBL LINK View, here's the LG WK9 that offers built-in Chromecast and the Google Assistant.

LG is not entirely straightforward about the technical specifications of the WK9 either, merely listing on the Korean company's official United States website support for proprietary ThinQ Artificial Intelligence capabilities, "premium class sound" tuned by Meridian Audio, the 8-inch size of the product's touch screen display, and both built-in Google Assistant and Chromecast functionality. 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).

And, this week, Changhong, Element, Funai, Haier, Hisense and Westinghouse are announcing new Android TVs with the Google Assistant. Ask the LG ThinQ WK9 and it'll play it on YouTube for you.

You can pick one up when it goes on sale in the summer. Dish customers will need either a Hopper, Joey, or Wally box to use this feature, and supported languages now include English and Spanish. "It's the only ecosystem that has, let's say building blocks we need which is the multiroom, the voice assistant, the apps but as other ecosystems mature we will bring more assistants on board".
