Google Assistant Directory makes it easier to discover actions

LG Smart Display specifications

The report stated that over 70 million households will have at least one smart speaker and the total number of installed devices will be more than 175 million. eMarketer recently reported that 35.6 million USA consumers would use a voice-activated device at least once per month in 2017, representing 128.9 percent growth over past year.

The Google Assistant will be compatible with DISH's Hopper DVR, Joey client, or Wally single-tuner HD receiver to control their TV once it is paired with Google Home, Android phones or iPhones.

It will be the first pair of AR glasses which will be Alexa integrated. The Google Assistant Directory displays many category options, such as "What's New" and 'What's Trending, ' which will show Actions for commands like 'Ask What's my Quidditch position?' to learn what Quidditch position you might play, or 'Talk to Chuck Norris Fact, ' to hear amusing facts about Chuck Norris.


With this new Google Assistant integration, you should be able to use more advanced functions like control external hardware (lights and locks at home, universal remotes, etc.) and set per-account preferences like preferred apps for music.

Of course, this isn't the first assistant that DISH has integrated for its customers.

"We're thrilled that Toyota and Lexus will bring Alexa to customers on the road", said John Scumniotales, Head of Product for Amazon Alexa Automotive. However, that only worked with its Hopper and Wally receivers.
