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.

  10. Maritess S Reply

    It will help me organize our favourite family recipes and personalize our music playlists.

  11. This would help tremendously between everything I have to keep up with in our household. With kids in school, working, doctor appointments. Also, letting me set timers for when I’m in the kitchen. What the weather will be for the day, since we have such a huge fluctuation all the time. Putting on some music while cooking dinner, and doing chores.

  12. Scheduling! Getting the household working towards the same goals

  17. Florence Cochrane Reply

    I would bring it on the road to check traffic, directions and the weather. I would use the video chat with my family the most.

  18. Clare O'Brien Reply

    It will help me stay organized and on top of my schoolwork & job.

  19. I love the idea of Google assist while I’m in the kitchen. I feel like it would be my personal cookbook so I can see how to make things. Seems like something I definitely need.

  20. Jackie Dirstein Reply

  27. This would be so helpful with the voice commands as I’m always on the run and having info (and music) immediately available is so very convenient!

  28. Natalie Rourke Reply

    The Lenovo Smart Display would be perfect to help me show my older parents how to search for things, set reminders and even make grocery lists. My mom would love to be able to use voice activation to listen to the songs she loves while cooking- even helping her find her recipes or for my step dad to find a phone number. Amazing !

  29. Catherine Robichaud Reply

    This would be great to help remind me of the days appointments as well as letting me know what the weather is and how to get where I’m going.

    So my ‘household’ consists of me 2 dogs and a cat… I’m getting old and kinda braindead…so I would use this to remind of things to do… thanks!

  32. This would be amazing to have! I would love to use it for recipes and streaming music. Getting set up to be able to lock the doors remotely would be amazing! I always get up and check that they are locked at least twice after I go to bed.

  33. This would help me be more organized and have easy access to all my recipes and music.

  34. I think it will keep me busy while I am housecleaning by playing my fave songs.
