Smart Displays are getting recipe recommendation cards and a personal cookbook

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Google's announcements today aren't just about the Assistant. While most of that functionality will also be coming to Smart Displays, they're getting a few unique tidbits of their own in the coming weeks that could come in handy when cooking this Thanksgiving.

New cards for recommended recipes will be visible on your Smart Display home screens (visible in the GIF above). They'll be seasonally and time-appropriate, with content tied to recipes you've previously searched for, making them even more relevant.

Lenovo Smart Display 8″ is half price ($100) at Best Buy in early Black Friday deal

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

Google Assistant smart displays are one of the most intriguing new product categories in recent years, but they aren't that affordable. The Google Home Hub is the cheapest available at $150, but it's still a fair whack. At just $100, this 8" Lenovo Smart Display from Best Buy could be the perfect starting point.

Ryne was suitably enamored by the 10" version in his review, and although this deal is for the 8" model, that's no bad thing.

Wednesday, October 24th, 2018

If you own a Chromecast, a Home Hub, or a Smart Display, you may soon notice something different when using Google Photos in Ambient mode. Instead of showing up centered, two related pics will display side-by-side.

The change was noticed a few days ago by our tipster on his Chromecast, and now Google has made it official in a Home Hub support document. This new behavior seems to be coming to all devices capable of showing Photos in Ambient mode then.

YouTube Kids support comes to Google Home, Cast TVs, and Smart Displays

Wednesday, October 24th, 2018

Let's face it: some corners of YouTube are just plain disturbing. To save our children from seeing the dankest of memes before they're ready, YouTube Kids exists — a platform where you can set limits on what sort of content your little one can see, how long they can watch videos, and even whether or not they can use the search bar. Google is now broadening YouTube Kids' reach by expanding support to Google Assistant-enabled Smart Displays, Google Home, and Cast TVs.

Saturday, October 20th, 2018
