Amazon and Google's intelligent speakers and displays offer a variety of features. Yet most people only use them for basic tasks such as listening to music or checking the weather.
Of course, it's hard to discover what these speakers can do. Most smart speakers have an invisible interface. Just say a command and your music will play or your timer will expire. This is great for using the commands you know, but it's very difficult to find those you do not know.
Smart displays like the Amazon Echo Show and Google Home Hub c are just as frustrating, even with a touchscreen, because neither platform has found a really good way to show users new features. So we've come up with some of the most useful and least thought-out ways you can use your smart hubs that you might have missed.
