New features coming to Smart Display (Oct 22nd)

2018-10-22, 19:19 PM

Starting today and rolling out over the next few weeks you will start to see these features coming to the Lenovo Smart Display:

 

You will know you have the update if your device version is 3.63.43

 

Major updates to your Smart Display:

Previewed at our recent Made by Google event, these new features will roll out to the entire family of Smart Displays over the next few weeks: 

    • With multi-room audio, you can add your Smart Display to a speaker group and play music throughout the house.

 

    • With Live Albums from Google Photos, your Ambient Mode will always show off the best photos of your favorite people and pets without you having to curate them. It will also make sure to pick your best photos, so that receipts, screenshots, duplicates, and blurry or sensitive photos will not appear on your Smart Display.

 

 

    • With Nest Hello Doorbell, your Smart Display will now show who is at the door when someone rings, and allows you to send quick responses.

 

    • With Home View, you can see and control all of your smart home devicesin a single dashboard by swiping down from the top edge of your Smart Display.

 

 

    • Your Google Assistant can now also control many popular media and entertainment devices, including TVs (Hisense, Philips, Sharp,Sony, Vizio, Xiaomi), set top boxes (Dish, Foxtel, nVidia Shield, Sling, Vodafone), speakers (Denon), smart remotes (Logitech Harmony) with many more coming soon from Caavo, LG, Panasonic, Roku®, Telus, and Telstra. Enjoy universal controls to power devices on and off, adjust playback/volume, and browse a visual channel guide—all by touch or by voice on your Smart Display.

I checked out the home hub in stores today and the screen is too small for me. I am considering the 10" Lenovo. With this coming update on the Lenovo, are there any missing features, compared with the home hub that I should know about?

That is great to see as I am really looking to use the home view update. Any way to have the display check for an update or request for the update now?

I said - "Hey Google, check for update", and it said to just leave my device connected and it will download updates when available.  Wish you could force check an update.

Thanks!  Although I am looking forward to this update, from a user standpoint it doesn't seem right to force updates onto devices without the user approving it, let alone the lack of notifying them that an update has occurred.  Other Android devices such as phones allow users to choose yes/no to upgrades.  It also lets users know their device was recently updated.

,

 

Understand your concern, similarly to Alexa, google assistant will automatically update. I would suggest using the feedback function to send google feedback and maybe request an opt-out to updates but this would render your display useless.

No one got any update yet. Look like we will get it by end of this year. I wish there was any way to force update it.

I hope it comes soon ..... can't use it properly at the moment.

 

it's supposed to be a front end for my google home max.

 

if it takes more than a week from now I might return it and get a google home hub. 

 

please please, can we have a real date for the UK ... Don't even mind being a beta tester ...

I definitely want the group feature as well, but as an aside - you can currently make your home Max the output for audio (it says "music", but not sure if other audio applies) for your smart display.  In the Home app, settings for the smart display, change the default speaker to your home Max.  Maybe that could be a workaround for you in the meantime.

done that .. but then you can't control the music on the screen. ( that's the whole point of the smart display :-) just makes it another google mic in the room. 

 

also if you select music from the screen's recommendation it just plays is on its own speaker and ignores the default output.

Ah, bummer. I hadn't tested it myself, just knew it was an option.

To each their own, but I'm definitely sticking with the lenovo. The camera is too important for me to even consider the Google Home Hub. Not to mention the bigger screen in the lenovo, and I just like the design much better.

But do agree if updates don't come at all, that's highly disappointing. But if it's this month, that's good for me.

The annoucement said "next few weeks". I was hoping/expecting it to be 3 weeks at most.
Did you see any new info saying that it could take til end of Nov or end of Dev for the rollout?
