Samsung Smart Monitor series to get Google Assistant support this month & Alexa support in July

Samsung unveiled its ‘do-it-all’ screens, Samsung Smart Monitor series, back in November 2020. The said smart screens are now available in multiple regions across the globe.

The series includes the Samsung Smart Monitor M5 and Smart Monitor M7. These devices offer features like wireless DeX, Office 365 support, UHD 4K support, and much more.

The smart monitors are ideal for working, while they can also be used for entertainment including watching TV.

Also, the said lineup of smart screens run the Linux-based Tizen operating system. While these devices can support several virtual assistants, they currently support only Samsung’s Bixby.

However, that is slated to change in the near future as a couple of virtual assistants are on their way to Samsung’s smart screen lineup.

As per recent updates from Samsung Newsroom, the OEM is working to bring Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to its smart screen devices.

It seems that support for Google Assistant is expected to come to the devices in question this month. On the other hand, support for Amazon Alexa is scheduled to be enabled in July.

The said support will be enabled on Samsung’s smart screens via an upcoming OTN (Over The Network) update.

This is certainly good news for users as they will be able to use the said virtual assistants via the remote control for the smart screens.

However, no exact date has been provided by Samsung so it is advisable to keep an eye out for any new updates for the devices in question.

Hopefully, the OEM provides support for the said virtual assistants without any unexpected delays.
