LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Frontier Smart Technologies, a leading supplier of digital audio technologies, today announced it is adding support for the Google Assistant to its SmartSDK. The company is previewing its Google Assistant implementation at this year’s CES.

“The addition of the Google Assistant to Frontier’s SmartSDK is an important step forward for our business and our customers.
