Google working on smart screen assistant device to compete with Echo Show
01 October, 2017, 00:30 | Author: Jan Cross
The sources say the device, codenamed Manhattan, was originally scheduled for mid-2018. If you are eager to know what's new on the second generation of Amazon Echosmart speaker, then here's the details.
In addition, the device has also seen improvements made to its speakers and microphone technology, so it should not only sound better but will also be able to hear your voice more clearly.
Amazon also is adding higher fidelity equipment to the next-generation Echo in an apparent response to the HomePod. The size and viewing angle of the screen make Echo Spot ideal for use on a nightstand or desk as a smart alarm clock that can also turn your lights on and off, watch a video flash briefing, show your commute time, get the weather, or show your calendar.
There's a chance, though, that YouTube will eventually become available on the Echo Show. The new smart speaker will have the standard Google package on board, including YouTube, Google Assistant, the ability to control smart home devices, and support for video calls.
The report emerges just a day after Amazon unveiled a slew of new Echo devices, all enabled to run Alexa, the internet retailer's voice assistant.

The Google Smart Screen rumours might point to a good reason for why Google recently broke YouTube compatibility on the Amazon Echo Show.
The feature will make an AmazonEcho a lot less passive device, and we wonder if this will make it more or less popular. We literally carry portable computers around in our pockets every day, and they can do everything these devices have been shown to do and more.
The device, which is now codenamed Manhattan, will feature a 7-inch display, just like the Echo Show, but will offer access to a wide range of Google services, including Assistant, Photos and YouTube, along with Netflix. This is actually a bit odd since it lets you call yourself with your own phone number from an Echo. Other companies such as Roku and Google sell streaming devices at comparable or even lower prices than Fire TV. Smart home camera support on Fire TV now works on a range of devices from companies including Arlo, Ring, Nest, and August.
Google does not want to be left behind in the segment of devices with integrated screens thought to be the center of the digital home. Though it might get released in 2018 as Google is now looking to partner with smart hub manufacturers like Best Buy Geek Squad and Enjoy for home installation.
