Lenovo, Google pair up to build Assistant-enabled smart alarm clock

Los Angeles: Tech giants Google and Lenovo have collaborated once again to build a smart clock that leverages the power of the search engine’s voice-enabled Google Assistant and touch display by the PC maker.

As Mashable reports, called simply the ‘Smart Alarm Clock’, the device costs USD 79 and is likely to launch this spring.

The clock features a small 4-inch touchscreen display, fabric-covered 6-watt speaker, volume buttons, and USB port to charge your phone. You can listen to music or podcasts, but can’t watch a movie or video on YouTube.

It also syncs with your calendar and provide alarm suggestions. It features an ambient light sensor to optimise the display based on your room’s lighting condition.
