Why adding a screen makes the Lenovo Smart Display so much better


Voice is great, but sometimes you just can’t beat visuals.

Ask anyone who’s used Google Home for any length of time and they’ll tell you this — it’s great. But it could be so much better with a screen. And that’s where the new Lenovo Smart Display comes in. Think Google Home, with a screen. (And an even better audio experience, actually.)

Video, of course, is a big thing. And when you think video, you think YouTube. And the Lenovo Smart Display handles that better than any other product of this sort. But it goes even further, having great integration with YouTube TV for live shows, and Chromecast for anything and everything that uses that brilliant little protocol.

Or consider it in the kitchen. There’s a reason why cookbooks exist and we don’t usually reach for an audio recording of kitchen instructions, right? Having ingredients lists and instructions right in front of you, available to see, is how the cooking experience was meant to be done. Step by step, on the screen. (And, again, video!)

Then there’s the news. Audio is great, but a picture’s worth a word or two or a thousand or so. Some things just require video. And we’re now seeing major news platforms push dedicated video feeds to the Lenovo Smart Display, so you can always be up on what’s going on.
