Slimme displays worden populairder
October 10, 2018 -- Slimme displays die functioneren als home assistants krijgen meer grip.
Amazon, Google en Facebook komen allemaal met nieuwe apparaten.
Google has followed Facebook and Amazon by launching a new smart display, allowing users to talk with a virtual assistant as well control smart home devices and watch YouTube videos.
However, unlike its more expensive rivals, Google’s new Home Hub comes without a camera, in an effort to avoid the kinds of privacy concerns that are dogging Facebook’s new Portal device.
Tech giants like Google, Amazon, and Apple, have been testing the water with relatively inexpensive smart speakers for the last year or two, with customers installing always-on microphones in their kitchens, lounges and bedrooms. But despite fears of eavesdropping and privacy leaks, such devices have sold millions of units worldwide.
