Google has partnered Chinese technology company Lenovo to manufacture a new category of devices called “Smart Displays” which are interactive screens for smart home devices with Google Assistant.

“With the Google Assistant built in, the Lenovo Smart Display brings you the best of Google services, including Maps, YouTube, Calendar, Duo and Photos, in a visual and helpful way,” Chris Turkstra, Product Management Director, Google Assistant wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

With the interactive touch-and-voice combination, “Smart Display” would enable users to multitask and control their smart home devices with simple voice commands and touch gestures.

With “Smart Display,” Google is also offering three free months of YouTube Premium service for new subscribers.

“Your Assistant can even help you prepare a great meal on ‘Smart Displays’ with step-by-step hands-free guidance on screen. Of course, you can set timers and play music while you cook,” Turkstra added.

Google search is rolling out a new feature that will let users check their pronunciation of unfamiliar words with the help of machine learning.

With this new feature, a user will be able to speak into their microphone and then Google’s AI will analyze the snippet and compare it against the word’s correct pronunciation.

Then, the user will receive feedback on how each syllable matches Google’s expected pronunciation.

‘For example, if you are practicing how to say “asterisk,” the speech recognition technology analyzes how you said the word and then, it recognizes that the last soundbite was pronounced ‘rict’ instead of ‘hsk,’ Google said in a statement recently.

Presently, it is available on mobile in American English and is coming soon in Spanish.

Google is also improving its word translations and definitions with visual prompts.

“Starting rolling out today, when you look up the translation of a word or its definition, you will start seeing images that give you additional context. This can be useful with words that have multiple meanings like “seal,” or words like “avocado” that aren’t commonly used in all languages or regions,” the company added.
