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.

We will continue to roll out the Assistant to existing Android TVs such as AirTV Player, Bouygues Telecom, LG U+, TCL, Skyworth and Xiaomi. Of course, Google's Assistant brings all of its useful and fun features, such as smart home control, your daily schedule run-down, and news briefings.
