Meanwhile Amazon is spreading Alexa far and wide to all sorts of different products that you would not typically associate with digital assistants like bathroom mirrors, shower heads, mesh routers, headphones, TV, navigation devices and even Windows computers. LG made a decision to use Meridian Audio and add an 8-inch touchscreen display and a front-facing camera on this device.
Google, Lenovo, JBL have come up with a new set of devices named as "smart displays". That would apparently put the Google Assistant at the heart of a smart home ecosystem, illustrating its close ties and integrations with other hardware from under the Alphabet umbrella like Nest thermostats and the Chromecast streaming adapter. While Amazon's showing was more muted, the online retailer did use CES 2018 to announce that Alexa would be coming to wearables everywhere. Google showed off self-branded devices, speakers, and televisions from partners.
