Alphabet’s Google said on Monday its voice-controlled virtual assistant will show up this year in new tablet-like devices designed by LG Electronics and Sony as the technology company seeks to challenge Amazon.com’s dominance in a fledgling market.

Dubbed smart displays by Google, the new devices introduce tablet-like screens to speakers that can obey oral commands to perform tasks like playing music, dimming lights, locking doors and setting alarms. JBL and Lenovo also are developing smart displays, Google said.
