If you look at Alexa, you can only control via Amazon Echo smart speakers.

Between BLACK FRIDAY and the end of DECEMBER 2017, 7% of Americans report acquiring at least one smart speaker - 4% report acquiring their first smart speaker device during the holidays. LG is the third manufacturer to get on board the bandwagon as they too have announced the release of the LG ThinQ WK9. Shortly after the announcement of Assistant coming to display-endowed speakers, we discovered the Lenovo Smart Display then we learned about the JBL Link View.

The recent CES 2018 held in Las Vegas was mostly about Google Assistant powered speakers and headphones.

Obviously, the Google Assistant is running the show, so you can go ahead and watch videos on YouTube, ask questions or check the weather and much more. We will continue to roll out the Assistant to existing Android TVs such as AirTV Player, Bouygues Telecom, LG U+, TCL, Skyworth and Xiaomi. This means, once you've told Google Home to talk to your TiVo, you can use natural language to search for any upcoming programming or recordings.

"We're pleased to be working with the Google Assistant to offer our customers the ability to control Hopper's video experiences through the Assistant on speakers and phones", said Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management. As for LG, it has an advantage because the company knows the smart home game. "It's the only ecosystem that has, let's say building blocks we need which is the multiroom, the voice assistant, the apps but as other ecosystems mature we will bring more assistants on board".
