Are Smart Displays Really The Smartest Option For A Smarter Home?
What is the difference about using a smart display vs using your tablet for the same thing? The OS used are different in both cases, with some smart displays using Android Things OS while others relying on Android. The two systems are significantly different, mainly in voice control.
Android Things-based smart displays usually focus on voice commands are built to respond to voice than swipes or taps. This feature is what that makes them an excellent kitchen assistant. A tablet running on Android OS will not be able to help you the same way.
There are other smart-home centric qualities of smart displays, too. Most include swipe-down dashboard controls for things like lights, cameras and thermostats for quick, easy access.
The GE Kitchen Hub is a great example here. The lack of Google Play store on smart displays makes things slightly inconvenient. With the standard Android OS, you can go ahead with customization of any kind.
The GE Kitchen Hub features an app – Flavorly – that guides you through a recipe, offering a hands-free experience. While the smart home controls are not very intuitive, the level of customization possible with the GE Kitchen Hub makes it an attractive product. Tablets also tend to integrate better with voice assistants.
