  • Google Assistant coming to more speakers and home appliances from LG

Like Google Home, these new speakers can also be set up with multiple accounts, play music from various services like Spotify and Google Play Music and control other smart home devices. The Link series is only coming to the UK, USA (with pricing to be announced on that side of the Atlantic), France and Germany however, so if you're reading from elsewhere, you may want to shoot off now.

"From the start, we've believed that your Google Assistant should be available wherever you need help, and that's why it's already on Google Home, eligible Android phones, iPhones, Google Allo, and Android Wear", Google senior director Abhi Taneja writes.

In the second half we got more space and we scored a goal, but it could have gone the other side of the post. But one minute after that, Lukaku headed into the far corner after being picked out by Thomas Meunier.

Google Home is now your go-to smart speaker that allows Google Assistant experience to the fullest. The Panasonic SC-GA10 aims to supplant the Google Home by, well, sounding better.

With the Google Assistant built-in, users are going to be able to use this speaker to ask Google for different things like what's the weather like, what's in the news, or to control their smart home.

Denny Hamlin Wins at Darlington, Martin Truex Jr. Clinches Regular Season Title
Hamlin has had a good year at the tracks he's traditionally done well at this year, so look for that to continue tonight. With his win in the Xfinity Series race Saturday, Hamlin swept both major races at Darlington Raceway this weekend.

Google made its assistant openly available to third parties when it released a software development kit earlier this year, and the IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung) will see the launch of at least two other speakers sporting the technology. The company said more devices carrying the digital helper would be announced at the IFA tech show occurring this week in Berlin. A command like "OK Google wash the dishes" might start your washing machine. It will be up for sale in two colour variants - Black and White. "Ok Google, are my clothes clean?" or "is the laundry done?" Battery-powered and capable of functioning without being plugged in, the TicHome Mini also comes with an interchangeable strap that makes for easy carrying or hanging around the house. All you will have to say is, "OK Google". If it all goes through smoothly, Google Assistant will soon be scheduling your sprinklers, turning on the slow cooker, and other appliances around your home.

While thus far it doesn't seem Google Assistant will be directly integrated into the appliances, users will be able to communicate with their smartphone, Google Home or an equivalent device (instead of talking directly to the appliance).
