  • DEAL: Get Insignia's Smart Alarm Clock With Google Assistant for $100 Off, Down to $40

As well as YouTube, the usual suite of voice-activated Google Assistant features is at your disposal.

"U.S. consumers are now able to enjoy more developed services provided by the Google Assistant and the Deep ThinQ, which is an AI platform developed by our company", an LG representative said. Google also demonstrated the Lenovo display on stage, showing off YouTube TV integration and looking up recipes. Simply press and hold the mic button and ask for information such as the weather forecast ("What's the weather this weekend?"), nearby local businesses, or check the score of the big game without disturbing the viewing experience.

Smart speakers are about to get upstaged at home by an arguably smarter device - smart displays.

Prices for the Google displays will vary.

MobileSyrup has reached out to Google for Canadian pricing and availability and will update this story when we have additional details.

The Google Assistant expands on the LG TV's voice command capabilities by allowing LG TV owners to control TV operations, discover and access content from a variety of sources and incorporate the power of Google Search right in your TV.

Lenovo has announced that it brings the smart display for $199 for the 8-inch variant, while the 10-inch display will be available for $249.

Smart displays, however, offer utility by bringing visuals to many tasks, such as video demos when cooking or doing home fix and graphics when requesting a weather forecast or traffic report. At the Google IO keynote this morning Google have announced that they will be here in July.
