Do you remember when the first flat screen TVs hit the market? It was in the late 1990s, and at that time you could expect to pay about $15,000 for a 42-inch model.
The first models were pretty cool to look at but were also pretty basic. Technology has come a long way since then. Massive screen sizes, 4K Ultra HD resolution, and apps built right into smart TVs are just a few great features.
Now, smart TVs are about to get even smarter.
Helpful feature coming to smart TVs
I'm sure that you all know about smart assistants at this point. We're talking about virtual assistants like Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant.
These handy helpers can make life easier with a simple voice command. You can use them to play music, control smart appliances, get details on your morning commute, and so much more.
Now, some future smart TVs will have Google Assistant built right in. LG and Sony presented this new technology at this year's CES trade show. Watch the following video for a brief description of what you can expect.

Once this technology makes it to your television you will no longer have to fumble with the remote. You can simply ask your TV to change channels or turn up the volume.
Not only that but you can get answers to your pressing questions. Like, who is the lead actor in Casablanca? Find out sports scores without having to open another app.
The possibilities are unlimited! Who knows what they will come up with next?
