Google also notes being able to use any Assistant phone, speaker, or TV to check the status of your vehicle and control certain aspects, like locking the doors.

LG Electronics is developing technology created to enable its appliances, televisions and other devices adapt to users and collaborate to handle tasks.

Along with the unveil of the new Smart Displays form factor last night, Google announced that "Assistant is coming to Android Auto". With support for Google Assistant, business professionals may be able to use the digital assistant to start or end meetings, increasing efficiency and reducing technical difficulties. We're also making it easier than ever to use voice control through Alexa-enabled devices.

Consumer electronics titan LG on Monday proclaimed this year a "tipping point" for smart homes, pushing hard into artificial intelligence and building Google Assistant into a smart speaker.

This year, Google's virtual assistant is going to make it on more TVs. Not only will the company host an exhibit called the Google Assistant Playground, but it has Assistant-related advertisements plastered on Las Vegas' monorail and on the casino-ridden strip. These include up to $200 of Google Cloud Credit a month, Google Assistant T-shirt, and even a Google Home. He is also VP of Strategy and Insights for the Local Search Association.

Also new this year: Some serious competition.

"Televisions, refrigerators and more will understand you and your preferences, and tailor an experience that is right for you", said Samsung global consumer electronics president HS Kim. Google's Assistant can be summoned on Android smartphones, and Siri lives on Apple's iPhones. A person can ask the Google Assistant a question and the response will be shown on a screen. TV makers such as Hisense, Xiaomi, and Skyworth will be bringing Google's voice-activated helper to their Android TVs.

TiVo says that smart home integration with Alexa and Google Assistant will improve features and services like OnePass, SkipMode, and SmartBar, so look forward to more details about what those improvements will be.
