New Samsung TVs To Come With Alexa, Google Assistant Support - CES 2019

New Samsung TVs To Come With Alexa, Google Assistant Support - CES 2019”

However, Amazon does not reveal any specific details to say how many of Amazon's Echo devices have been sold against the third-party products.

The company has now sold more than 100 million Alexa devices around the world, this number was revealed to The Verge by Amazon's SVP of devices and service Dave Limp.

"I think a lot of people still look at how many skills Alexa has versus Google Assistant and I think that's a bit of a shortsighted way of looking at it". For laptops, Google-built Chrome OS devices all have access to the Google Assistant, and it sounds like it's going to be a standard feature on all Chrome OS devices soon.

Rather than building the assistant software and associated hardware into its TVs, Samsung will require an existing Google Home or Amazon Echo device to power voice control. This app is part of the "Google Play" Android app bundle, so it's included in the box in pretty much every Android phone sold outside of China. Because Siri and Google Assistant come preinstalled on most mobile devices and only some would consider replacing them with either Alexa or Cortana, the global majority is still small. By the end of January, Google expects its voice assistant to be running on 1 billion devices, up from 400 million a year ago. If you are unaware, Echo Auto can be mounted inside any vehicle and is powered by Alexa.

It is still unsure if Samsung will be bringing Alexa or Google Assistant to support its older TVs but the company has a history of updating older models a few months after its latest sets hit the market, so it could be a possibility.
