Google has announced it would put its Assistant on partners' smart speakers, appliances and smart cameras. The company in May this year had announced that it would be releasing SDK for third-party developers to build smart speakers and devices running Google Assistant.

Citing the announcement made at the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) industry show that kicked-off in Berlin on Wednesday, Tech Crunch reported that the move is likely to be good for both the voice-powered assistant market as well as for Google's ability to use its service to collect useful data which it can then use to work on its advertising and marketing products.

The devices that would get "Assistant" include the Anker Zolo Mojo, a small cylinder speaker that's like a third-party Google Home, which will go on sale in late October.

Two other smart speakers powered by "Assistant" are Panasonic GA10 and the TicHome Mini.

Google is also now making it possible to use "Assistant" to check on the state of your laundry or dishes, using an integration with LG's line of home appliances.
