With the holiday season upon us, Google is sharing ways that the Google Assistant can help you throughout the holiday season. With this, you can use Google Assistant on your phone to speak through your smart displays at home like an intercom. Everything will continue to work as normal if you don't throw a "please" or "thank you" into the mix.
Together with this, the Google Assistant has now updated lists.
Israel police recommends PM Netanyahu be charged with bribery
It is claimed Netanyahu and his advisers supported regulations worth hundreds of millions of dollars to telecom company Bezeq. Mr Netanyahu held the government's communications portfolio until a year ago and oversaw regulation in the field.
Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury fight to draw in heavyweight title bout
The good news for LeBron and the rest of us is that both Fury and Wilder suggested they would be keen for a rematch next year. Wilder looked like he wanted to attack Fury's body early then went head hunting in the middle rounds without much success.
Klopp Without At Least 4 Men For Merseyside Derby
This season they have been far more threatening, however, scoring a total of 20 goals scored in 13 games to buck the trend. They don't have the same respect for us that they have for Man City, for example.
Finally, Google Assistant now supports two-way talkback with the Nest Hello video doorbell, making lists, and a "Pretty Please" feature that rewards users for saying "please" and "thank you" when addressing the assistant.
The US manufacturer has taken the winning formula of its 'The Three Heritage Wireless' speaker and essentially added Google Assistant voice control (hence the name). In light of that, the new update for Google Assistant includes, among other things, more cheerful responses to reward you when you have good manners - specifically, when you say things like please and thank you. Similar to the Pretty Please feature, the notes and lists integration within the Google Assistant was announced at I/O 2018 earlier this year. According to Google, "Santa Claus is busy rehearsing for a musical concert - but he only knows one song and needs your help!" Also, Google now offers over 50 story titles like "Beauty and the Beast", "Cinderella", and Dora the Explorer's "Dora's Super Sleepover" among others.
The features appear to be rolling out as part of a server-side update. This means that if you are at the grocery store and need to find out if you need milk, you can send a message to the Google Home speakers at home to have someone check and see. Say "Hey, Google, tell me a story". You can say something like "Hey Google, add Minions shot glasses to my Christmas shopping list" and the voice assistant will create a "Christmas shopping list" with Minions shot glasses listed under it. These smart displays make Google Assistant more visual and work really well in the kitchen or the bathroom, allowing you to watch YouTube, and much more. You can also quickly hide a photo from your ambient screen or favorite a photo to be enjoyed again at a later time.
