Announced Google and Samsung, the Google smart assistant (Google Assistant) is now available on the latest Samsung smart TVs in the US.
The AI assistant will be available on Samsung smart TV models for 2020, including (8K QLED), (4K QLED), (Crystal UHD), (Frame), (Serif), (Sero) and (Terrace) groups.
The update will be available in the US first, and will be rolled out in more countries soon.
And as more people discover the benefit of the smart home, Google continues to work with partners to provide the best experience from the assistant to your favorite devices.
Pressing the microphone of the TV remote control activates the assistant, and users will be able to switch channels, open applications, and adjust the TV volume using voice commands.
And TVs have settings for available voice commands that can be controlled using the microphone on the remote control, but you have to tell them that you want to use the Google Assistant instead of Samsung’s default Bixby assistant.
You can also control other smart home devices that you have connected with Google Assistant.
After installing the air update, users can enable the assistant via Samsung TV by going to Settings> General> Sound> Voice Assistant.
There were hints that Samsung was thinking of more uses of the Google Assistant, with reports during the summer that Google and Samsung were negotiating the feature of the assistant more prominently on Samsung devices.
It is unclear what this means for Bixby, a assistant introduced by Samsung in 2017, and the South Korean company is said to have begun phasing out some of Bixby’s augmented reality features.
Google also announced that the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential, which supports its voice assistant, is now available.
The clock is the successor to the very famous (Lenovo Smart Clock), so that the current version fits almost anywhere in your home, thanks to its small size.
The company provided the watch with a 4-inch (LED) screen that gives you what you need to know, such as the time, day of the week and weather.
The $ 49.99 watch – which is slightly cheaper than other voice-assisted watches – can stream playlists and podcasts, add items to shopping lists, make calls and control other compatible smart devices.
