Amazon announces Echo Show voice-controlled touchscreen speaker

    So it’s a small tablet with Echo built-in. How about using an old tablet and Google Assistant instead? One can leave Google Allo on, the tablet plugged in for power, and connect a bluetooth speaker for better audio if necessary.

      There is a Raspberry PI project that has Google Assistant. As a matter of fact the magpi magazine #57 comes with a Raspberry PI project with a Google Assistant wrapped in Cardboard. It even includes the mic and speaker. Also in Canada you can buy a Raspberry PI zero with Bluetooth and WiFi for just $13 Canadian. Just supply your own micro SD card with noobs and Google Assistant installed, find a cheap mic, speaker, and micro USB power supply. That’s all she wrote! Away you go! You have a very inexpensive Google Assistant.


      Just remove the round brackets from the line above.
