Google Assistant is one of the best virtual helpers on the market. With Assistant, Google is showing the world that it’s more than just a search engine and Android phone. Google has been improving its personal assistant since the launch day to take on other likes of Apple and Amazon.
Google’s virtual helper has its upper hand over its competitors on the market, thanks to its ability to handle more complex tasks. Google Assistant was initially designed for Pixel phones, but Google officially added it to Android 7.0 Nougat, offering users multiple ways to interact with apps and services.
At this year’s Google I/O event, the biggest search engine on Earth announced a lot of new features and skills for its assistant, like new voices, continued conversations, multiple actions, and even more. Google says that Google Assistant is now available on more than 500 million devices worldwide, making it a tough rival that challenges Apple Siri on the market.
Google today announced that Google Assistant will be able to obey up to three commands at the same time. In reality, Google has been working on support for more voices in Assistant for months so today’s news won’t come as a surprise.
When it comes to voices, Google Assistant will support 6 new voices in future updates. Google’s move receives a wide welcome from users and experts worldwide. Google also introduced a handy feature called Continued Conversation. As the name implies, the feature keeps your conversation running without interruption. This means you don’t need to repeat “Okay Google” each time. For example, you can say “Hey Google, turn on the TV and give me sports scores.”
One of the biggest additions to Google Assistant lies in Multiple Actions. With Multiple Actions, you can ask Assistant to perform multiple actions at the same time.
Google is expected to launch the third generation of Pixel phones this year. Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are among the best phones on the market, thanks to their innovative features and excellent camera performance.
Rumors regarding the next generation of Pixel phones have been around there for months. However, it remains unknown when the device will hit the market.
