Until now, Google has competed in the smart speaker space against Amazon's various Echo's with its own Google Home speakers, which lack a display. It's interesting to note that rather than running the version of Android you'd be used to seeing on a phone, the Smart Display runs Android Things.

While heavily reliant on voice input, Android Auto has been reliant on an older voice input model - but that's about to end.

The new Lenovo Smart Display comes with Google Assistant built into a full HD touchscreen display and wrapped in a minimalist design.

Users can also call friends with Google Duo, watch YouTube videos, listen to tunes or manage their connected devices, all controlled by with just voice and a quick glance at the display.

A number of speaker companies have announced Google Assistant compatibility at this year's CES. The Danish audio company already allows voice control through a Google Home speaker, but later this year the feature will be available directly on some of the company's gear.

To help you in this, Google has launched a new directory for Google Assistant. Turnkey hardware solutions based on the Qualcomm SD212 Home Hub Platform, MediaTek MT8516 and Rockchip RK3229 SoM are certified for the Assistant and Cast, and NXP i.MX 8M is coming soon. Even so, we're going to see the most of the two assistants in products showcases by other companies. "It's just a question of whether its feasible to Chromecast users", he said.

And for me, it finally gives me the possibility of a custom Chrome Search Engine that will make finding Assistant apps 10 times faster than reaching for my phone when writing articles for Android Police. In all, from Google Maps directions to ordering food with the Panera voice app, Google Assistant is now able to fulfill more than a million actions.

Google also highlights prototype demos involving its Things can be found in the NXP booth, such as "HandBot, DrawBot, 3D printer, and AI artwork T-shirts".
