This week set up what will be an ongoing theme for 2018; how companies package their voice assistants into new products, with the ultimate aim of having we, the consumer, use them. The learning curve is not that steep, and TiVo feels it is time to jump onto that specific bandwagon. While other smart assistants include Cortana and Siri, neither of these are embedded in anywhere near the number of devices as Alexa and Google Assistant. With IFTTT, the possibilities with TiVo go beyond just the convenience of voice controls to deeper, more relevant AI-powered tasks. Following the JBL Link View and the Lenovo Smart Display, LG is also revealing its new ThinQ WK9 speaker with Google Assistant inside.

The key benefit to AI is that it's supposed to be smart enough to learn your preferences and adjust accordingly.

The Google Assistant is your personal Google.

This company isn't new to making smart glasses, but the product it plans to unveil at CES 2018 could change the game. As a part of CES announcement, Google announced a directory where you can see what Google Assistant can do. These headphones are optimized for the Google Assistant; once you pair them to your phone, you can talk to the Assistant instantly with just the touch of an earbud, whether you want to skip a track to hear the next song, get notifications, or hear and respond to your messages.

Amazon's smart speaker is available in two versions - the full sized $180 (£145) Echo shown here, and a smaller, $50 (£40) version called the Echo Dot. Users are at liberty of controlling the volume or control tracks via voice command through Google Assistant. TV makers such as Hisense, Xiaomi, and Skyworth will be bringing Google's voice-activated helper to their Android TVs. For more updates, stay tuned with us! Well, many manufacturers did announce some form of integration of their products with the virtual assistant, Besides, the search company has reportedly partnered with 15 companies to make new products featuring its technology.

"We have over one million actions available to users that [they] can now look up", a Google spokesman told the BBC. Using exclusive survey data, this report evaluates each device's potential for adoption based on four criteria: awareness, excitement, usefulness, and purchase intent.
