The Google Home is one of our favorite smart home assistants but now you can get the same assistant in a Lenovo with an 8" screen.

If you've considered getting a smart home assistant, you may feel like there's not much to choose from - just Amazon Echo devices, the Google Home, or the Apple HomePod. While these three brands certainly dominate the market, they're not the only options available.

We've tested each of the three major personal assistants and found that the Google Assistant was consistently our top pick in terms of actually being useful. That's why we were excited to learn about the Lenovo Smart Display that comes with Google Assistant. It resembles the Echo Look but with a lower price tag and no dependence on Amazon to work. It can sync with over 1,500 smart home products and has a camera for video calling (plus a Privacy Shutter for extra safety when the camera is off).

Right now you can get the Lenovo Smart Display with an 8" display for just $199.99 from Walmart and also get an additional $20 Walmart gift card. If you already have Google products or use Google suite for work then we think this is an excellent smart home assistant at a great price.
