Mobile World Congress has kicked off in Barcelona, Spain and Lenovo is using the event to make a few key announcements. On Monday it revealed a new lineup of Yoga laptops, equipped with Alexa voice assistant capabilities. Dilip Bhatia, Vice President of Marketing, User & Customer Experience for Lenovo joins The Long and The Short to explain the future of voice within Lenovo's products.

On top of adding the Alexa capability to its laptops, Lenovo has teamed up with Google to create a "Smart Display" for Google Assistant. Bhatia believes voice is one of the most important technologies we'll see in the future. It could change the way consumers look at and buy products. He says Lenovo will start integrating voice capabilities into all its products in the near future.

Plus, Motorola, a company under the Lenovo umbrella, debuted its "Motorola Health Mod" feature for the Mod Z device. The feature allows you to measure five vital signs, similar to a smartwatch. Bhatia explains why Lenovo feels it's important to get into the medical device space and teases that more products may be on the horizon.
