Facebook will enter the market smart speakers
Facebook is preparing to compete with the adults in the gear market by launching two smart speakers in July 2018.
One of the assistants seems to have more advanced design and features like a touch screen as in the Echo Show plugin and the other a simpler and more traditional assistant.
The touchscreen is expected to be a large 15-inch touchscreen and supports facial and audio recognition and of course connected to Facebook and Messenger so that voice and video calls can be made.
Both are still under development and it is too early to see accurate pictures of them and all the benefits they include, but it is clear that this year will be the fiercest competition between Google, Apple, Amazon and even Facebook in the home audio market.
