The Lenovo Smart Display 7: The newest (2019) third-party smart display out there. [credit:

The Google Assistant continues to suffer at the hands of Google’s product shutdowns. The latest products to die are third-party Google Assistant smart displays. 9to5Google was the first to spot this quietly posted notice on a Google Duo support page:
Important: Google no longer provides software updates for these third-party Smart Displays: Lenovo Smart Display (7″, 8″ & 10″), JBL Link View and LG Xboom AI ThinQ WK9 Smart Display. This could impact the quality of video calls and meetings.
We’re pretty sure that announcement applies to every third-party Google Smart Display that has ever launched, so the product line is dead. Google’s first-party smart displays, the Google Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max, aren’t going anywhere and will now be the only options on the market.
