In the movie Her, main character Theodore falls in love with his digital assistant, voiced by Scarlett Johansson. With the latest update to Google Assistant, that concept doesn’t seem so far off. Google Assistant can now be voiced by R&B singer and EGOT winner John Legend. The feature was first announced by Google at Google I/O 2018. You can experience the smooth new voice for yourself by asking Google Assistant to “talk like a legend,” after which you’ll hear Legend’s voice for jokes, or for answers to questions like “What’s the temperature outside?” or “Why is the sky blue?” You’ll also get the new voice for Legend-specific questions, such as “Who is Chrissy Teigen” or “Are you John Legend?” Unfortunately, it’s only certain content that will be in John Legend’s voice, so you can’t really permanently set John Legend to be your assistant’s voice, and at least some … [Read more...] about Google Assistant can now finally talk like a (John) Legend
Google Assistant really is almost everywhere at this point – it’s in smart mirrors, for example – but Google has not yet fully entered the older car scene on any great scale. That will change some this year, thanks to new products from companies like Anker and JBL, who are bringing Google Assistant-equipped cigarette lighter dongles to market. Both companies announced new in-car Assistant accessories this week at CES. With Anker’s Roav Bolt or JBL’s Link Drive, you can add Assistant to your non-Android Auto equipped car and get all of the voice commands one could ask for (directions, weather, nearest gas station, etc.). The setup is supposed to be incredibly easy, with quick pairing between your phone and the dongle, once it has been plugged in. Both options also include fast charging to your phone, connect over Bluetooth (or Aux), and feature noise cancelling mics. Now, to be clear, this concept is not at all new. There have been Amazon Alexa cigarette … [Read more...] about Google Assistant Comes to Your Car With New Cigarette Lighter Plugs
source Google The latest version of Google Assistant for iOS lets you summon Google Assistant via Siri. You have to say “Hey Siri, OK Google” to open Google Assistant. Then say “OK Google” again to use your voice with Google Assistant. It’s an imperfect workaround, but it helps break down the barrier that Apple built around its ecosystem – before now, there wasn’t a way to open Google Assistant using your voice on iOS. Up until Wednesday, the only voice assistant you could summon and control with your voice on Apple’s devices was Siri, but that’s now changed with the latest version of Google Assistant for iOS. In the latest update, you can now add Google Assistant’s “OK Google” summoning phrase – or your own custom phrase – to Siri. That means you can summon Siri and ask it to summon Google Assistant using your voice. It goes like this: “Hey Siri, OK Google.” Siri … [Read more...] about There’s finally a way to summon Google Assistant on your iPhone using your voice

Broadcast messages Most of these enhancements work with Google Home Hub smart displays and/or Google Home Mini smart speakers.
