Some 'earlier' Sonos speakers will work with Google Assistant this year

Some 'earlier' Sonos speakers will work with Google Assistant this year

Samsung Electronics announced that it will equip its Samsung Smart TV with Apple's iTunes Movie and TV shows app and AirPlay 2, at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 in Las Vegas, Sunday. This means that users will be able to control their Samsung TV with the help of these voice assistants. And it's really similar to what Amazon is doing with the Alexa Connect Kit.

The Korean company failed to announce when we can expect to find Bixby on fridges, air conditioners and the like.

Google makes its voice assistant now also to the Translator and wants him to make, for example, at the time of Check-In in Hotels useful. In any case, there's one trick: you'll need to give the assistant device - be it an Echo, Google Home, or another smart speaker - yourself. "There will be multiple players for the foreseeable future".

The Morning After: 'Stranger Things' S3 release date
After almost a whole year of anticipation, Netflix has confirmed that the adventure will continue on July 4, 2019. We'll keep you posted on when one or more genius level eggheads have figured out what all the Easter eggs mean.

As Engadget reported, TVs have played a large part on what went on there. All told, more than 100 million Alexa devices have been sold. As you can see in the screenshots below, version 1.0 already had integrations for various Google apps.

For a little perspective, Google says that Google Assistant was available on just 400 million devices this time a year ago, so it has seen a significant amount of growth since then. Anyone that buys an Echo or Google Home speaker is definitely using the service, but I'm sure there are tons of people with Android phones who don't have the Assistant set up. Google said it predicts that Google Assistant will be available on one billion devices in a few weeks, which is up from 500 million devices in May 2018.

The older Samsung TVs are also expected to get Alexa or Google Assistant support soon once the newer TVs are launched.
