They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and this couldn’t be more accurate to describe our family. Our kitchen is a buzzing hub not only for eating meals but also for connecting before heading to work, school and outings. It’s our place to congregate for family meetings, organizing calendars, and making plans.

As someone who needs to stay organized, I have written lists, a bulletin board, and written a daily planner. But often those organizational tools aren’t enough! The Lenovo Smart Display with Google Assistant can help the whole family stay organized efficiently and quickly thanks to its smart voice response and crisp screen.

Since we started using this clever device, I start the day putting on a pot of coffee and asking Google what’s going on for the day. Simply say, “Hey Google” and ask anything you want – “What’s the weather today?” and “What’s the latest news?” I’ll also ask to listen to my favourite playlist on Spotify.

I’ll ask “What’s on my calendar today?” and hear about events on our agenda. If I’ve forgotten to add something manually to my calendar, I can ask Google to add it via voice commands – so I can continue what I’m doing. Multi-tasking at its best! It’s like having your own personal assistant who can take notes on demand.

Lenovo Smart Display with Google Assistant Features

The Lenovo Smart Display is easy to set up; either place it portrait or landscape to suit your needs. Simply plug in, download the Google Home app, and connect to your Google account.

The 8″ touchscreen display with 1280 x 800 resolution lets you watch videos, view content, and video chat with beautiful clarity. Use the Google Duo to stay in touch with your loved ones.

Add location so your experience can be tailored to where you live, and explore the options available in your area with Google Maps.

The built-in Google Assistant allows you to enjoy all the benefits of Google Assistant but with the added bonus of a video display.

Ask Google Assistant to show you recipes, tutorials, or music videos on YouTube. Ask to hear your favourite songs on Spotify; the speaker is nice and loud, delivering clear and balanced sound.

If you have the capability, you can also dim the lights, adjust the temperature, or lock the front door, instantly and remotely.

    Being a busy mom with 3 teenagers and a toddler this would come in so handy, I could keep up with who has what practice, appointments, ask where certain places are that we need to go and so much more, the possibilities are endless
