New features coming to Smart Display (Oct 22nd)

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.

Re: New features coming to Smart Display (Oct 22nd)

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.
