Derheimliche Star of product presentation at Bang Olufsen was one that would not necessarily have been expected from such a traditional manufacturer of beautifully and simply designed consumer electronics devices: Google.
It was on eve of official opening of current international Radio Exhibition (IFA) in Berlin, curtains at stand of Danish company were still drawn, dahinterdrängten journalists, some sat, many stood. ProduktmanagerinRoberta Spigarelli talked about new products, which were still veiled, about visions of future of one's own company. Finally, step to a table, cloth was removed and two cone-like loudspeakers aluminum came to light: Beosound 1 and 2.
However, two devices are not new, y were originally introduced in 2016. Bang Olufsen She has only one bisschenüberarbeitet: The speakers are now smart, y have Google Assistantinstalliert.
"EinSprachassistent becomes a must-have feature in products", SagtHeidi Hausted Fredberg, product Manager at Bang Olufsen. Two years ago, trend was recognized and thought that Wieman voice control could be implemented in its own devices. Since you are not specialized in language assistants, you have just Googlezusammengeschlossen. Also with Amazon you find yourself in talks, users of Beosound loudspeakers can possibly soon also talk to Alexa.Even lawnmower is talking
Should burned manufacturers represented by IFA be able to seismograph as technological, n voice control is basis for future success in all possible areas. Inloudspeakers, talking and listening personal assistants are almost self-evident according to models of Amazon Echo and Google home, but also in cars, washing machines, even lawn mowers.
The software does not program most companies mselves, Sondernkooperieren with most well-known tech companies in field: just Amazon UndGoogle. Only Apple and Samsung rely on ir own language assistants with Siri or Bixby, whose voice speaks from new loudspeaker Galaxy home. Orwise: eir you talk as a user and user with Alexa (among ors with Bose and smartphone manufacturer Huawei) or Google Assistant (about Blaupunkt), or alternating with both. The concept is: to be innovative with denSoftwarekomponenten ors.
But what added value do se collaborations actually bring to users? and which manufacturers?
Poses ManDaniel intoxication This question, as Vice president responsible for smart home area at Amazon, replies that Durchbruchfür language assistants are networked home. "So far, Smarthome was not wirklichsmart." Wher you turn on an app Öffneund light on it or run briefly to light switch, that doesn't make much difference. Voice control, on or hand, also work over long distances, so networking of devices really makes sense.
What Rauschnicht says: Strictly speaking, re is little change for users. Because you don't need a smart speaker so you can control your networked home. If you want to turn light on or off, you can also do this via voice function of a mobile phone. And if you already have a Google home Mini, you can also use Chromecast to operate some speakers, such as Bang Olufsen. At beginning of year, an expert said at a panel discussion at Advertising conference D3con to device manufacturers: would offer IhrenNutzern no better or faster functionality with voice control, n you should leave matter rar. Not many device manufacturers seem to have followed this advice.Updated Date: 04 September 2018, 12:00
