Samsung's 2019 TV lineup supports Alexa and Google Assistant

Today, in fact, Google revealed a seriously impressive number. But most importantly, the company now has some serious bragging rights to back up its CES domination: Google Assistant is now on 1 billion devices, according to the company. For laptops, Google-built Chrome OS devices all have access to the Google Assistant, and it sounds like it's going to be a standard feature on all Chrome OS devices soon. Google also says that active users-both monthly and daily-have quadrupled over the past year, though the company won't say how many people are using Google Assistant regularly. Still, all of this shows how far Google's digital assistant has come in a short time.

It expects that by the end of this month the Google Assistant will be available on one billion devices, Google stating in a blog post on Monday, noting that this is up from 500 million devices from May of previous year.

The voice-controlled intelligent personal assistant service was first launched in November 2014 and has since been developed so that other companies' devices and services are able to connect to it. This total includes all devices that have Alexa built-in, and Amazon has opted not to reveal individual device sale data.

But even with that advantage, Google is still clearly on a mission to win hearts and minds at CES and beyond. This year is no different.

What's next for Google Assistant? . "I think there will be more than that". There are hundreds of millions of feature phones still being bought every single year. "The largest footprint right now is on phones, ' Bronstein said". There's no touchscreen and there is no physical keyboard available, so texting on a T9 keyboard can be very cumbersome and hard.
