Google surprised everyone in the CES January 2018 by announcing that they are working on a Smart Display. Smart speakers from Amazon, Google went very trending this year but the concept of Smart Displays was a bit astonishing. After waiting for months, Google has now finally made available their First Smart Display. It is the first smart display with Google Assistant from Lenovo. The worthy partnership between Lenovo and Google will surely bring out a lot of beneficial features for technophile users like me! It would be smarter and easier to use than a smart speaker and I believe that if more smart displays come into the market with affordable pricing then it will be the end for the era of smart speakers. Now it’s the time for saying “Hey Google” to smart displays. Let's see about this Google First Smart Display
In the Lenovo + Google First smart display you will get all the Google Assistant features also loaded with some AI features. The device can show weather, manage lists like to-do and most important it can show you songs rather than playing the tune, that’s why it’s called a smart display. It will have support to Spotify, Pandora, HBO, YouTube, Google Play Music, and Audiobooks. Using it you can watch tutorials with your hands-free. You can use it for learning new recipes for dishes or you can watch makeup tutorials. It can become a good video live streaming partner or you can experience a better video call on a big screen using Skype or Google Duo. The inbuilt GPS sensor offers full usage of Google Maps for seeing directions and locating places with voice control.

The Google powered Lenovo’s first smart display will be available in two size variants. One having 8 inch display (1200 x 800 pixels) will cost around $200 and another one having 10 inch display will cost around $250. The $250 variant sports Full HD display.
No doubt it’s a worthy rival of Echo Show. It has got a stunning design, great sound quality and awesome display. The device becomes more powerful because it is integrated with many Google apps and premium features. But you can’t use it as a full tablet at some circumstances.
