So we would get to see a bunch of new digital displays in the market.

Alexa will start YouTube videos with a simple voice command, make video calls via Google Duo, spot a specific photo in Google Photos. Google showed off self-branded devices, speakers, and televisions from partners.

As for the new phone directory, you can access it by opening up Assistant and then tapping the blue icon in the right corner. You can even reserve parking space through SpotHero.

CES 2018 provided a platform for the display provider Vuzix which has been trying to make a fresher, advanced model of Google glasses for quite some time now and seems to have finally succeeded. Namely, this piece of software allows you to integrate Alexa into your wireless headphones and smartwatches so you can use it wherever you want. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 624 SoC and comes with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support.

Google and Amazon weren't alone in voice assistant news this week. The two types of Lenovo smart displays which can be used as a picture frames when not in use will retail for $199,99 and $249.99 respectively this summer.

It has an 8-inch touchscreen display and speakers it says are tuned by Meridian Audio, on either side. On the other hand, the bigger variant with 10 Inch display carry a price tag of $249.99. This means that, at least for some products, you won't have to choose sides, and can control devices using whichever voice assistant you're in the mood for.

In the wake of being outpaced by its rival, Amazon's Alexa, Google is looking at a renewed consumer push for its Assistant. Google's decision to respond to Alexa's dominance of CES 2017 marks a shift in its narrative, suggesting a more aggressive promotion of assistant services could be coming. The Google Assistant recently pushed to LG's Smart Speakers.

With that being said, according to sources familiar with Google's plans, the company will revamp its existing online store in February. Google claims that they will cover more number of devices later this year.

You guys can comment below for any question. From tracking your baby's help to keeping track of your cryptocurrency assets, the Assistant does so much more than merely telling the weather, which is 95% of users' favorite party trick.
