To Know More :
Despite its common points with a simple Google Home speaker, the Lenovo Smart Display is a much more developed assistant. It stands out first with its 8-inch IPS HD screen, which offers very good brightness. It will therefore have its place in an office or a kitchen, but we will avoid putting it in a room so as not to be dazzled at night.
If you want to support yourself in the kitchen, the Google Assistant integrated into the Lenovo Smart Display will allow you to easily follow recipes on Marmiton or 750g. In the living room, the device will display your diary, your shopping list or the weather forecast. Thanks to its two 10W speakers, it will stream music through Spotify, Deezer, Play Music, Youtube Music and Amazon Music in a very decent way, although less efficiently than with a classic Google Home. To remedy this, it is possible to connect additional speakers via Bluetooth. Thanks to its Chromecast functionality, it will also be easy to watch a Netflix series, follow a stream on Twitch or simply use the Lenovo Smart Display as a small extra TV with the Molotov app, for example.
Equipped with a 5 megapixel wide-angle camera as well as a microphone, the Lenovo Smart Display will come in handy for video conferences from the office or for simple video calls with your loved ones. Be careful though, this feature can only be used with Google Duo, so don’t expect compatibility with Facebook Messenger, Zoom or Skype.
Finally, the Lenovo Smart Display can act as a control center for your connected objects (lights, security system, other household products, etc.). It will be able to link to more than 1,500 devices via the Google Assistant.
