Samsung’s 2019 TVs will include Google Assistant, reports Variety. Current Samsung TVs are limited to using the company’s own Bixby voice assistant, which significantly lags behind the competition. The new TVs are also expected to produce better sound by automatically adapting the audio to the room they’re in. It’s not clear exactly how Google Assistant will work on Samsung TVs, but the report suggests it will function similarly to how it does on LG TVs, which added support for both Google Assistant and Alexa in 2018. Voice assistants can be used to control the TV directly (to change the volume or switch inputs for example), to control other Google Assistant compatible devices, or to ask more general queries about topics such as the weather.

When it comes to TV deals, there are few brands that can compete with Vizio. Sure, Samsung, Sony and LG might be able to drop their premium screens a few hundred bucks during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but you'll be hard-pressed to find something extraordinary from them for under $1,000.But that's not the case with Vizio.Not only are most Vizio TVs just as good as the competition, but thanks to some exceptional deals that happen right around the holidays, they're often available for around half the cost of the competition (see: the Vizio P-Series Quantum).
