For those who do not want to spend money on an extra screen.
First came the smart speakers, then came the smart screens. More and more people are showing interest in smart screens, according to figures from the Electronics industry.
But is there a smart way to get a lot of the smart screen functionality without actually buying a smart screen? Yes, thinks Google, which is now launching Google Assistant's "Ambient Mode".
Replaces the lock screen
The feature, which was featured during this year's IFA trade show, transforms any Android device into a smart screen when it is charged.
This is what Google writes about the feature:
"Google Assistants Ambient Mode is a new visual overview that makes it easier to see notifications and reminders, launch a playlist, and control smart home devices on your device's lock screen. When done, the screen will be transformed into a personal digital photo frame linked to your Google Photos account to give a personal touch. "
Unfortunately, this feature won't work with all Android devices at first. The first devices that support Ambient Mode are Lenovo's Smart Tab M8 HD, Lenovo Yoga Smart Tab and Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2.
And by the way - Google Assistant is now coming to more headphones and speakers.
