Everything you need to know about Google Assistant


Google Assistant is getting smarter than Google Now ever was. Not only does the service support more than one language, but it also will soon feature more robust third-party integration, meaning that it can help you control your entire digital life — not just your Google life.

Assistant is similar to Google Now in that it allows you to ask questions and get answers. The service goes beyond the the messaging app Allo where it debuted — it’s also now featured in Google Home, Google’s answer to the Amazon Echo. And, of course, it’s also found in all kinds of Android smartphones that run Android Marshmallow, Nougat, or Oreo. Here’s everything you need to know about the Google Assistant.

Google wants to make Assistant the go-to for not just information, but also for fun. To that end, the company announced that it is bringing a cool 50 new games and activities to Assistant on Google Home and compatible Android phones.

The games range in type and genre. For example, you could ask Google Assistant to “play space trivia,” “tell me a story,” and so on. There is a pretty big list of new games and activities to choose from, and they are targeted towards families — and you can see the full list for yourself on the blog post.
