Google Assistant is coming to more smart speakers

For now, Google says that the Zolo Mojo by Anker, TicHome Mini by Mobvoi, and the GA10 by Panasonic will all offer integrated Google Assistant capabilities.

The company is making it sound like the Assistant will behave the same way on third-party devices as it does on Google's own Home speaker.

Google Home is now the best smart speaker available in the market, thanks to the built-in Google Assistant which is arguably the best personal assistant.

Alongside the speakers, Google is also announcing that the Assistant is able to integrate with some of LG's home appliances. While the Assistant will be able to work with many speakers, the service will only be available in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Germany and France.

Further partnerships and integration with appliances makers will be announced throughout the rest of the year.

Chiefs' Spencer Ware likely needs season-ending surgery for torn PCL
Andy Reid said Saturday that the third-round draft pick out of Toledo will handle the bulk of the carries while Ware is injured. Ware suffered the injury Friday during Kansas City's Week 3 preseason loss to the Seattle Seahawks .

Panasonic will also release a Music Control app along with the smart speaker, which will let you connect two SC-GA10 speakers for stereo listening or use Party Mode to stream music over Bluetooth or via AUX.

The announcements were made ahead of of IFA, an global consumer electronics show to take place September 1-6 in Berlin. "Ok Google, are my clothes clean?" or "is the laundry done?" At CES earlier this year, Amazon Alexa was in so many connected devices that it truly stole the show and many are hoping Google's solution will have similar results.

You get an Echo Dot-like design with buttons on top as well as a strap to easily carry the TicHome Mini with you everywhere.

The company said that it would open its digital voice assistant up to developers at its Google I/O conference this past May, so the moves are not unexpected. It means that it can talk smart and it is more like a person that you are talking to than just a flat, companion without brains or emotions.

Want to know what's happening with your favorite team or find out the latest score? Using the Google Assistant, users can perform a range of tasks such as checking the remaining time for a wash cycle to finish or telling the refrigerator to create more ice.
