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.

  1. It will help with tutorials and video displays. Also be great when trying new recipes for a watch and learn session.

  2. My teen has been having anxiety at school & so starting in September we will be involved in the online schooling program so she can learn at home without distractions or hardships of peer issues. The Lenova Smart Display would be a blessing to do her work on & the Google assistant feature would be like having a teacher to aid her right in the comfort of our home!

    This would really help us organize all our activities because we actually don’t have a calendar! My daughter has so many classes and I’ve had a lot of doctors appointments so this would be a much easier way for the family to know what’s happening.

  19. Vanessa L. Reply

    It would help me get ready for the day. I could know the weather and check that the public transit is on time. It’s even easy enough for my daughter to use.

  20. This would be super handy! Perfect way to easily check the weather forecast, and I love getting to hear the music I want just by asking!

  21. We are on different work schedules so we can use the Google Assist to let others know if we’ll be home on time or running late.

    My dad has ALS, so daily activities can be pretty hard. he relies on iPads, “alexa”, and other technology to help with daily tasks. this new google assistant looks like it would come in super handy! especially when in comes to organizing schedules, pills, and easy access to internet!

  29. I love the touch screen option I can use for recipes, as an alarm clock.

  30. Elizabeth Matthiesen Reply

    This would be great to be able to see the weather forecast for the day, essential here in our bitter cold winters. It would also be marvellous for view content, and video chats with my children and grandchildren in Europe.

    My hands are always tied with a seven month old. I would use this in the kitchen a lot when I need to look up recipes or want to put on some music for us to dance to.

  32. I think the calendar would be very helpful to ensure we were always where we need to be!


    I like to try new recipes so it would be nice to have Google Assistant show me the recipes,
