Smart Displays, like the Google Home Hub and Lenovo Smart Display, are great. They're helpful smart home gadgets and one of our favorite ways to interact with the Google Assistant, but since their debut last year, there have been some missing features compared to their screen-less smart speaker counterparts — one of the most notable being Continued Conversations.
However, as confirmed by Google to Android Central, Continued Conversations is finally coming to Smart Displays. Continued Conversations is rolling out over "the next few days" to all Smart Displays powered by the Google Assistant in the U.S. that are set to English. Similar to smart speakers, this is an optional feature that users can opt in and out of.
I first spotted Continued Conversations on my Google Home Hub, and to no surprise, it works just like it does on other Assistant speakers. After saying a "Hey Google" or "OK Google" command, you can make a follow-up request without having to say "Hey Google" / "OK Google" every single time. On Smart Displays, a small Assistant icon appears in the upper left corner to let you know it's still listening.

Google confirms Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 are coming, but with few details
Google has confirmed it will have two more Pixels to launch in 2020, and they'll both have 5G. The Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 will come later to complement the standard Pixel 4a, and while we have a decent idea of what they'll be like through leaks, Google isn't spilling details.
Google Pixel 4a review: The best camera under $400 is a perfect 2020 phone
It turns out Google's "less is more" approach really fits well within the constraints of a less-expensive phone, and its strengths in software and camera processing stand out against less-refined competition. The Pixel 4a picks up right where the 3a left off, with better specs, the same great camera, and a $50 lower price.
Google Pixel 4a specs: Upgrades in performance, display and battery
Google never goes overboard with Pixel specs, and that's particularly true with the "a" series. The Pixel 4a, like its predecessor, is about giving you a great all-around experience for the money by being very selective about which specs and features are included.
