[Discussion] [Weekly Debate #22] Do Smart Speakers Really Need a Display? Share Your Views!

Hello Mi Fans,

Tech giants want to squeeze another screen onto your countertop. Tentatively dubbed "smart displays," these gadgets combine the functionality of smart speakers like the Google Home or the Amazon Echo with a touchscreen for watching videos, looking at pictures or seeing extra info after you ask Alexa or Google Assistant a question. Just like smart speakers, you can ask smart displays to control your smart home, search the web, make a call, add something to your shopping list and check you calendar, among a long list of other things. Is it really worth the added expense?

Nowadays we live in the era of omnipresent voice assistants, with Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant waiting only for a word from you to answer (even if sometimes they speak even without being asked). Thanks to these modern systems you no longer even need to take your phone out of your pocket to search for something on Google or to turn off the lights in the house. But when we are used to doing everything using our voice, why would we need a touchscreen display? Isn't that a step backwards?"

However, smart displays could prove themselves useful, especially if you want help in the kitchen or if you have a lot of smart home devices. For simple tasks where you might want a visual reference, such as cooking, they're better than tablets, as they have far-field microphones that are supposed to allow them to hear you from across the room.

Smart displays also have more robust speakers than tablets. Also in the culinary field, the display also gives you the opportunity to enjoy multimedia content, such as a video on YouTube or a TV series on Amazon Prime Video, while you are preparing your carbonara.

Yes, I personally feel it's better to incorporate a display in smartphones. It's an added advantages and feel/look more advance then an ordinary set which is mediocre and can be mistaken as a "Bluetooth" speakers. Xiaomi has to remain forward moving.
