LAS VEGAS-If you own a TiVo, you'll soon be able to control it through your Amazon Echo or Google Home. Lenovo is aiming to make Smart Display your all-in-one in-home entertainment/assistant device. Now we have the third device of its kind, the LG ThinQ WK9 (could also be called the ThinQ View WK9).

Available in either 8in or 10in format, with a grey or bamboo finish, you can use its touchscreen to see results dug up by the onboard Google Assistant, whether that's weather forecasts, YouTube cooking tutorials, or whatever's in your diary for the day.

Earlier LG unveiled ThinQ smart speakers with Google Assistant and today it is expanding that lineup with a smart display – the LG ThinQ WK9. JBL says it is the frist smart speaker to incorporate the Google Assistant with an 8-inch visual display with a touch screen and 5MP front facing camera.

In order to link the devices, users are required to connect to them through the Google Home app or Google Assistant on their smartphone.
