There are reports coming out that the Samsung’s 2019 TVs are going to have Google Assistant. Current Samsung TVs have the feature of Samsung’s own Bixby voice assistant, which significantly lags behind the competition.
It is also expected that the new TVs are going to produce better quality sound by automatically adapting the audio to the room they are present in.
We still don’t know whether how Google Assistant is going to work on Samsung TVs, but according to the reports, it is going to work just like how it worked on the LG TVs, which features the support for both Google Assistant and Alexa in 2018.
Voice assistants can be used to control the TV directly, to control other Google Assistant compatible devices, or to ask more general questions about topics like the weather.
The addition of Google Assistant is going to play a vital role in the growth of Samsung as the world’s biggest seller of TVs.
The company tried to rival Google and Amazon’s Alexa by featuring its own Bixby assistant on everything that Samsung makes, including phones, smart home devices, appliances, and TVs.
But the problem was that the Bixby’s functionality has consistently lagged its competitors. It doesn’t have any support for third-party apps.
The company is expected to announce its 2019 TV lineup at the big CES 2019 tech show in January.
