NEW DELHI: Google recently added some new features to its virtual assistant. The tech giant has now once again announced some improved family features for Google Assistant. The company has introduced improved broadcasts, new bells, and more.
Google mentioned that it is introducing these features on the occasion of Mother’s Day.
With the new update, Google has expanded the Broadcast feature which now enables you to send messages to Assistant devices in your house. Using the Family Broadcast feature you can reach your family wherever they are, and they can respond from any device including from their phones.
Along with this, the company has also added new reminders to its Family Bell feature. Now you will be able to set up recurring reminders for your family. Google will now allow you to automatically remind your family that someone needs to water the plants or remind the kids about the house cleanup.
The company also revealed that in the coming weeks, the Family Bell feature will get support for eight new languages including Dutch, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish.
Apart from all this, Google Assistant is also getting new stories and games that you can access from a smart display or Android device. To get a full list of all the stories that are available, simply say “Hey Google, tell me a story.”
Recently, an online report revealed that Google has started an in-house testing of a new feature called Guacamole. This new feature will enable users to use the Google Assistant without saying the hot word ‘Hey Google’.
According to a report by 9to5Google, the feature will allow Google Assistant users to perform quick voice tasks like turning off the alarm or answering calls without the saying trigger word.
