Google Assistant announces new hardware partners

In-home on-demand services will turn on voice, phone, smart TV, and PC interfaces. As reported yesterday, Google trails Amazon and Apple in installed branded hardware base. Today, Google announced new hardware partners in automotive, home appliances, cameras, and other industries. JBL, Lenovo, Sony, LG, Altec Lansing, iHome, and others joined the ranks of Google Assistant-compatible devices.

Google claims Assistant is now available on 400 million devices. Availability is different, of course, than actual usage.
