Feature Requests

Hello all,

 

I have been using my Smart Display for a few days now.  As I'm sure most of you can agree, this is a fantastic device with many use cases and great potential for further enhancements.  Excited to have it in the house.  That being said, many of us have certain features we'd like to see added and have even made some requests in different threads.

 

I was hoping to centralize all of the feature requests in one single thread for Lenovo to respond to and maybe even update us on as we move forward.

 

To that end, I have compiled a list of feature requests I've seen on other threads or thought of myself.  I have tried my best to credit the person who first suggested the feature.  Sorry if I missed you!

 

Please comment below with additional feature requests and I will update the master list the best I can, time permitting.  Hopefully Lenovo will take notice and work with us on some of these changes:

 

Feature Request Master List:

  1. Continued Conversations - requested by zsamson and others
  2. Add to/Create Audio Group - requested by simrob71 and others
  3. Add Reminders set from phone - requested by zsamson
  4. Fix Duo calling issues - raised by jakecentric and others
  5. Fix Ambient Screen time - raised by Dcamel and many others
  6. Fix Google Photos display switching to random art pictures for no reason - raised by Tim3795 and others
  7. Nest Hello doorbell camera feed pop-up on screen automatically when bell is rung - requested by me
  8. Add dashboard of all smart products where you can manipulate anything with a swipe down for easy access - requested by me

 

If you guys don't like this approach, I'll let the thread die.  Let me know.

Re: Feature Requests

I think the smart home dashboard idea would be awesome! I agree with all of the features as well.

 

Right now I really want continued conversations and speaker grouping.

Re: Feature Requests

I agree with what you have and would like to add:

 

- Ability to speak to Nest Hello Cam through Smart Display

- Ability to link to Bluetooth Speaker for music playback (like normal google home)

- Show Lyrics during Music Playback (Trivial, I know, but i like this feature on the Echo Show)

Re: Feature Requests

Add smart display to Google duo as a contact so friends and family can call the smart display.

Re: Feature Requests

I'd like to request more talk back languages. I personally use English (UK) for all my Google home devices but the Lenovo Smart Display can only be set to English (US).

Re: Feature Requests

I noticed ambient mode fixed. 

 

What are you fixing?

 

I'd like to request the ability to disable ambient mode completely. 

 

Also the bring up all smart home products would be great. 

 

Thank you

Re: Feature Requests

I am on board with Feature Requests.  I have the google minis' all through my house and the L-display will broadcast/send music to my home group, but it will not participate because I am not able to place it in my Home group. As a result, unless i buy another mini, my living room has no music and the broadcast sent by the minis' dont reach the L-display.  As I read thru the list of Feature requests.  I can say yep... that would be great too.  I love this device, and when the price settles down, I will be buying one for my kids and parents and brothers!

So @darbos
