AutoVoice Chrome extension for the PC now works with Google Assistant

The AutoVoice Chrome extension for the PC has been updated so that users can speak and interact with Google Assistant via its SDK.

Published onMay 2, 2017

João Dias’ AutoVoice extension for Google’s Chrome browser has been updated, and it can now call upon the recently released SDK for Google Assistant. That means that anyone with Chrome and the extension can use voice commands with Google Assistant, even on a Windows PC.

Once you set this up on your PC, you will be able to communicate with Google Assistant so it can handle a number of tasks. As the video above shows, that could range from checking your schedule, to a quick reading of the news from the New York Times, or even just have it play one of your favorite songs.

While all of that is pretty impressive, getting the AutoVoice Chrome extension to work with Google Assistant is unfortunately not a simple task. You will first have to install Google Assistant on your Windows or Mac PC. You can check out the procedure to do just that over at XDA Developers.

After that is accomplished, you will need to go to the site and run some command line prompts to install the AutoVoice extension. After that, you should be able to use it to call upon Google Assistant. This is obviously not for everyone, but if you have the patience and skill you can make commands to Google Assistant like you can on your Android smartphone or the Google Home connected speaker.
