Voice assistant war between Amazon and Google rages on in CES 2018

Voice assistant war between Amazon and Google rages on in CES 2018

Amazon's personal digital assistant will be part of the auto features for new vehicles that Toyota will introduce this year, as announced at the CES 2018.

Alexa will be able to aid drivers and passengers with directions, news, shopping, and smart home control from the vehicle, among other functions.

Google has spent the past year bringing Assistant to over 400 million devices as it aims to make its virtual assistant available pretty much everywhere. Other manufacturers announced their own smart speaker products running the Google Assistant, or at least plans to adopt it.

Japanese automaker Toyota will integrate Amazon's Alexa voice assistant into some of its cars as the auto industry increasingly adopts the tech world's hottest offerings to improve the vehicle experience. But at least we know more about the LG WK9 Google Assistant touch screen speaker today than yesterday.

Kentucky Is First State Granted Approval For Medicaid Work Requirements
Children and non-disabled adults make up most of the enrollees, most spending is on the elderly and people with disabilities. Rick Scott, did not directly answer whether Scott would support work requirements or co-payments for the Medicaid program.

Given the thousands of press releases coming out of CES, we nearly missed the news that your TiVo DVR/Set-top box will soon integrate in your smart home setup, nearly regardless of which platform you've chose to delve into.

Furthermore, the smart displays are equipped with all the Google services' applications. The only difference between the 8-inch and 10-inch version is the resolution, as the former supports high-definition (HD) while the latter is capable of Full HD. In the future, it's plausible people could use Alexa for searches instead. The Smart Display is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 624 Chipset. "This integration means that customers can interact with Alexa, virtually anywhere they drive", explained John Scumniotales, head of product for Amazon Alexa Automotive. Adding Google Assistant will make Dish's TV service one one of the friendliest for voice control.

Google showed a lot of support in the Z-Wave Alliance booth, being part of many demonstrations there.

The whole idea behind Smart Displays is to serve as an in-house assistant for all your daily needs. In 2017 alone, Alexa gained so much functionality, we wrote a post about just to keep track of it all.
