Yesterday, CES 2019 officially opened its doors to the public. A couple of hours prior, Google invited the media to their massive booth in the front parking lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center to showcase some new features headed to the Google Assistant.
Google Assistant has become the central focus for Google ever since their event in October of 2016. With the roll-out in full swing to many devices across multiple categories, Google Assistant is becoming extremely pervasive. The flagship device for Google Assistant, Google Home, is also powered by a varied version of Chrome OS. As we watch Assistant fully integrate into Chrome OS, we realize the Assitant story is just beginning.
Even more so that last year, Google has descended on CES with one thing on their mind. Assistant Everywhere! We’ll be bringing you hands-on of as many products as we can hunt down but Google has also previewed some really great upcoming features as well as new forms of the Assistant that will be hitting […]
2019 has officially arrived. From the team here at Chrome Unboxed, we wish you a Happy New Year and hope that the year ahead will be a great one. In the spirit of the holiday giving season, Google has made it even easier to donate to your favorite charity. A recent addition to the Google […]
If reports from Variety are to be believed, it appears that Samsung may finally be caving to the pressure from the immense growth of Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa in the smart device race. At this point, according to stats garnered by Variety, by the end of 2019 Amazon will likely control 63% of the […]
The Google Home Hub is a new take on the smart display powered by the Google Assistant and depending on your use-case, it could be the best option on the market. For those wanting to side-step having a device equipped with a camera, the Home Hub offers the best integration for smart devices and all […]
Well folks, we’re getting to the point where most people have identified or already purchased those final Christmas presents for their loved ones. If, however, you are like my family, there were still a few lingering items out there even today that still needed attention.
There were no shortages of Black Friday deals on Smart Home products and you can still grab quite a few on most #MadeByGoogle products. If you’ve been kicking around the idea of getting your feet wet with connected devices, Target has a really good deal some very handy devices.
Black Friday is safely in the rearview mirror but that doesn’t mean you can’t find the perfect deal for your holiday shopping list. Most retailers will continue to offer discounts through the end of the day tomorrow similar, if not the same, as Friday’s deals. Cyber Monday has become almost as big as Black Friday […]
So far, the JBL Link View has been my personal favorite out of the available smart displays on the market. Lenovo’s renditions are certainly striking and a beautiful addition to the home decor but I am a lover of music and the JBL simply shines in the audio department.
Multi-room audio is nothing new, especially if you are a seasoned Chromecast user. All around our office we have Chromecasts and Cast-enabled speakers and each is assigned to various speaker groups to fit whatever audio needs that may arise. It’s a great feature and likely underused by most consumers and until recently, not available on […]
The big day is here and we’ve got a list a mile long to save you some serious dollars on your favorite Chrome OS devices, Chromecasts and more. As in recent years, most retailers are offering the same discounts on most Google-related products so I’ll save you my usual long-windedness and dive right in with […]

Since then, Lenovo and JBL have both brought their models to the market and are offering some pretty sweet discounts for the Black Friday shopping week. For months, the LG WK9 has been […]
