It is clear that this is something we can expect moving forwards into the future, and Google is aware of it.
This year's CES is coming to an end.
JBL, LG and Lenovo are all having a crack at their own smart hubs that come with a built-in screen, but it's not Alexa running the show - it's Google Assistant instead. Customers can also use voice commands to turn the mirror's embedded lights on and off, and tap into the rest of Alexa's skills, like asking for a weather report. And it's understandable, Google it's the most known company in the whole world. For example, there are Nest, LG, and Wemo sections that'll show you the actions you can take with their smart products. Though it's to note that Google does offer Google Express, a feature which lets users buy Walgreens, Costco and Toys "R" Us products.
According to PCMag, the integrations will work a little differently, depending on whether you're using Alexa or Assistant.
This is interesting because AI is increasingly making its presence felt, and if you want to plug Google-powered AI (via Google Assistant) into hardware, then Android Things is one route.
Over the last couple of days we've seen entires from JBL and Lenovo and now it's time for LG to show its hand.
"Panasonic's work to bring Amazon Alexa to the auto is a great example of how we're seeing greater collaboration between technology vendors to provide a more consistent experience in different domains", said Nils Lenke, senior director of corporate research at Nuance.

The latter has its own assistant in the form of Bixby, whose (or should that be its) abilities are to be extended and made more widely available with the announced release of a SmartThings app to appear mid-2018.
