Google Assistant is making its way to third-party speakers and appliances

Google Assistant coming to more speakers and home appliances from LG

Google Assistant is also still supports a wide variety of home automation and smart home devices including products from Honeywell, Netatmo, TP-Link and Wemo, with more on the way. The TicHome Mini is a portable connected speaker with full Google Assistant support, the ability to play music over WiFi or Bluetooth, and has IPX6 certification so it is splashproof. Anker is also behind the Alexa-enabled Eufy Genie, which retails for under $35.

Google has said that their blog will be updated with more brands being announced throughout the week at IFA, so we'll update with more as they're announced.

"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. Though the companies virtual assistant has so far resided on smartphones and watches (and of course the Google Home), you'll soon start to see it in products like speakers and appliances. It's also coming to Panasonic's (PCRFY) GA10, with more to be announced in the coming weeks. Zolo Mojo is a 5-watt speaker with two microphones, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, priced at $70.

Many people who use Google Assistant regularly probably already have a Google Home, but offering options for newcomers to the ecosystem certainly isn't a bad thing.

They also released photos of flooding in and around the Church . "Jesus promises us peace that passes understanding", he wrote . It also added that it would collect infant and adult diapers, baby formula and baby food, and help distribute to the community.

The GA10 from Panasonic is scheduled to be released in early 2018. Panasonic's offering has two 20mm soft dome tweeters and an 8cm woofer, and is set to deliver Hi-Fi audio. Keep in mind, in May, GE said some of its appliances would integrate with Google Assistant.

On the control front, Google announced that several new LG washing machines, clothes dryers, and vacuums will respond to voice commands spoken to a Google Home, Android smartphone, iPhone, or any other device with Google Assistant built in.

Unfortunately Panasonic was unable to confirm whether you'd be able to switch these inputs using your voice. These three speakers will be launching later this year, and we should expect to see more speakers announced at IFA 2017 this week.
