Insteon and Google Assistant release new voice-activated home system

Between BLACK FRIDAY and the end of DECEMBER 2017, 7% of Americans report acquiring at least one smart speaker - 4% report acquiring their first smart speaker device during the holidays. Now we have the third device of its kind, the LG ThinQ WK9 (could also be called the ThinQ View WK9).

Google Assistant may have completely taken over the ongoing CES 2018 exhibition, powering not just a large number of "conventional" speakers and headphones unveiled in Las Vegas this week, but also a new trio of "smart displays". "We know it will look like this, it will have an 8" touch display and front-facing camera, and the audio is tuned by Meridian Audio. With the addition of a display, though, such information is complimented with visual aids, showing your routes traffic conditions, or video news briefings from YouTube, for instance. One voice command and you'll have it right in front of you, via Google Maps.

Dish announced a promise that Google Assistant control will be coming to its Hopper DVR, Joey client and Wally receiver.

Obama gives dancing tips in first clip of Letterman's new show
Here's how to avoid embarrassment, dads: "I think the key is what we call staying in the pocket", the former POTUS explained. Obama also tells Letterman that parents who want to dance need to remember the golden rule of "staying in the pocket".

We feel that the Google Assistant wins over Amazon Alexa because of its ability to interact with smartphones and non-Android devices.

"Insteon continues to build interoperability with companies that enhance our customer's experience with their connected home", said CEO Rob Lilleness.

The LG ThinQ WK9 is most likely powered by Qualcomm's SD624 Home Hub Platform, as seen in Lenovo's and JBL's variants and we can expect it to be an industry standard of sorts until better hardware is released.
