Google has also added animations to complement some of the more personality-driven features of the Google Assistant.
Among the devices featuring Google Assistant are manynew smart speakers, including models made by Altec Lansing, JBL and LG.

The Lenovo Smart Display is meant to be used for just about any task you might also do with the Google Home: playing music, controlling smart home devices, and pulling up recipes or restaurant recommendations, for instance.

As a part of CES announcement, Google announced a directory where you can see what Google Assistant can do. And so here we are, with more news of Amazon and partners integrating Alexa into every product that might come to mind - glasses, cars, mirrors, microwave ovens, mobile accessories, computers and many others. Alexa in cars can also be synced with smart-home devices to control thermostats while on the road. Among them are a series of its Echo speakers, including an entry-level option (Echo Dot), a portable speaker (Echo Tap), and Echo Look, a style assistant that can take 360-degree selfies of an outfit.
Amazon has already said that Bose, Jabra, iHome, Beyerdynamic, Bowers & Wilkins, among others, plan on adding Alexa to various Bluetooth audio devices in the coming months.
Companies are rushing to incorporate voice control into their products and making sure they work with whatever service you use. We're just a few days into the new year and continuing to make the Assistant more helpful and more available, no matter what device you're using.
Amazon are of course eager to have Alexa integrated with as many smart devices as possible, so smart glasses and head-mounted displays (HMDs) are the next logical step.
