Google unveils Assistant: a smarter, more conversational voice assistant
At its annual I/O developer conference today, Google announced Google Assistant, a beefed-up voice assistant that can help you do much more than ever before.
Previously, Google’s voice assistant was simply known as “Okay, Google” or Google Now, but now the voice has a name. And with the new naming scheme comes a whole new way of talking to the voice assistant. It can now provide users with more natural two-way conversations and do much more than just schedule events and perform quick Google searches.
an ambient experience that extends across devices
Google Assistant will be available in a number of different devices later this year, so users will be able to use it at home, on their smartphones or in their car.
