Ever since its inception past year, Google has been adding a ton of new features to the Google Assistant. As per some reports from the Beebom Google is all set to launch a bunch of new features to its Google Assistant which will offer an overall better user experience.
Subscriptions: A user will be able to subscribe to third-party actions and also get daily push notification updates. Developers of Actions do need to add this feature, so not all of them will work out of the gate. The new support allows Actions to send alerts like "newly added workout, a change in a stock price, or a news alert, right when it happens".
On smart speakers, users will be able to control audio playback verbally, while Android devices gain standard media controls in the notification drawer and lock screen. These basically allow Assistant devices to understand more specific voice commands.More news: Florida Governor Signs Major Gun-Reform Law
Users can speak with Google Assistant devices by saying "OK, Google" followed by several new phrases starting today.
Also starting today, Actions will support media playback and controls on speakers and Android devices. Google uses the example of turning on a connected oven. Previously Google has maintained grammar and structure for commands, but under this new feature, Google will allow developers to specify any grammar and command to be executed by their device; this means commands like "set the oven to 180-degrees" or "put the washing machine on a delicate wash" can be added. Voice commands can be used to pause or replay media, and a media player will appear on your phone.
Assistant has long supported subscribing to certain tidbits of information, in fact, it was one of the original demo features in the Allo version of Assistant. Esquire and Forbes are some of the websites that have added the new functionality.More news: Ye Mantram Vesave Movie Review: Let's Wait For Vijay Devarakonda's Next Movie!
Google has opened up a "Fun House" in Austin, Texas for South by Southwest where they're presumably showing off all these cool new features, so if you're in the area head over and check them out.
Of all the features, the ability to issue complex commands seems most promising, as it'll significantly increase the number of things Assistant-powered devices can do. Enter your email to be subscribed to our newsletter.More news: Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to visit Douglas High School
