Episode 28: Smart Displays — the new frontier for smart homes and a smarter you [podcast]

We love our digital assistants, but after a while, they can start to feel so one-dimensional. The good news is that Smart Displays take the experience to the next level. Not only do they “tell,” they “show.” So, after your device answers your request for recipes for your upcoming dinner party, it can play the video that shows you how to serve up the world’s best hors d'oeuvres. Or, in the case of our host PJ, you can easily “flip the switch” on the 20 connected devices he has in his home — including the four he has in his bathroom.

Yes, a smart display can turn on your lights, play your music, and get the temp in your home just right for a cozy night in, but that’s just the beginning. As Qualcomm Technologies Staff Product Manager Karthic Veera says, “The real magic happens once you start interacting with it.”

We’ll dig deeper into that and more in this episode, as we discuss this new category of devices powered by breakthroughs from Qualcomm Technologies.
