One thing I hate about making meals in the kitchen is that most of the time I’m away from my television, so I end up missing that important catch in the playoffs or the plot of a tv show. Now thanks to Funai, Philips is introducing a 24″ Kitchen Android TV complete with Google Assistant
Not having a television in your kitchen is obviously a first world problem, however, you may want to check out this CES 2019 Innovation Awards Smart Home Honoree, as the Philips 24” Kitchen Android TV may have more use in your kitchen than that garlic peeler you have stuffed in the drawer.
Coming complete with Android 8 built-in, the Philips Kitchen Android TV comes with a far-field, echo canceling mic that allows you to access Google Assistant to get that recipe when your hands are covered in dough. When they aren’t you can use the included remote to access your online tutorials, streaming apps, music playlists, TV programming, and alerts on your smart devices.
Imagine being able to leave your phone charging in the other room and simply telling your television ‘Hey Google, find guacamole recipes on YouTube”. Or even turn on your lights in another room, monitor your entryway directly, or control lighting to set the mood while you cook. The possibilities are endless.
“The Philips Kitchen Android TV provides a unique experience that combines smart functionality, the convenience of the Google Assistant, and leading dynamic, high-quality audio and video technology into a compact design that complements any kitchen décor,” said Youssef Ibrahim, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Funai Corporation, Inc. “From legacy OTA broadcasting, to popular OTT streaming applications, and the future of voice control, this product is designed to be the perfect kitchen companion.”
As of right now, there’s no set release date or pricing, but it’s certainly worth following, and you can do just that by visiting Philip’s webpage.
