Google to Deliver Assistant with a Screen

Google is bringing forward a speaker with a display capability to compete with Echo Show.    Google has the advantage of having the huge content supply called Youtube, while Amazon only have much lesser content to display without access to Youtube.    Have had a test Echo Show in place for some time,  and we have found the visual display to be largely useful in support, rather than as the key interface.  Like best the voice/sound/device interaction in both directions.  Note too the Asian competitors.  Good detail in article below:

TAIPEI -- Google is preparing to release a smart speaker equipped with a display for this year's holiday season, sources have told the Nikkei Asian Review, escalating the competition with rivals like Amazon.com and Alibaba Group Holding in the market for voice-activated gadgets.

The new product, which is likely to be similar to the Amazon Echo Show, would round out the Google Home range of smart speakers running the artificially intelligent Google Assistant, akin to Amazon's Alexa..... "
