  1. Someone made an unofficial Google Assistant app for Windows 10 Google has a Google Assistant app for Android, iOS and Chrome OS, but nothing for Windows 10. This is a gap developer Melvin Abraham decided to plug, with his release of the Google Assistant Unofficial Desktop Client for Windows 10. The app is open-source and available on GitHub, but unfortunately despite appearing pretty slick, is not quite ready for prime time yet. Specifically, it takes about 30 steps to install the client, including registering for a Google Cloud accou
  2.

  3. Fix for Google Assistant's connection issues with Android Auto now rolling out Google is finally rolling out a fix for an issue pertaining to the Google Assistant in Android Auto, specifically faced by users on Android 10.

  4. NEW GOOGLE ASSISTANT FEATURE TURNS THE ENTIRE INTERNET INTO YOUR PERSONAL AUDIO BOOK The ability to read any web page aloud At its most basic, this new feature does exactly what you expect. It allows the Google Assistant to simply read web pages aloud to you in a natural-sounding voice with a nice cadence. Pauses for commas and periods are dictated the way you’d expect and the decidedly-digital voice sounds very natural. The Assistant reads off the title, the author, and then begins to read through the entire article, highlighting each word spoken along the
  5. If you've fallen and you can't get up, your smart assistant is probably not the best way to ask for help. A new study from the University of Alberta, published Tuesday in the medical journal The BMJ, tested smart assistants Siri, Cortana, Alexa, and Google Assistant on their ability to respond helpfully to first aid questions. While Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa way outperformed Apple's Siri and Microsoft's Cortana, the results as a whole were underwhelming. The researchers asked all of the smart assistants 123 questions on 39 first aid topics such as
  6.

  7. Google Assistant's Interpreter Mode is rolling out to phones today Google announced Interpreter Mode earlier this year, rolling it out to Google Home and Assistant-powered Smart Displays some time later.

Enlarge / The Google Assistant and Google Keep, now back together. Shopping list creation can be a very handy feature to have in a voice assistant.

  10. Google is testing radically revamped Assistant Updates feed Google is now testing a drastically dissimilar design for Google Assistant "Updates" which sorts information in a chronological manner. The redesign is significantly different because until now, cards were being organized by topics such as "Keep track of things" and "Coming up for you". The new update currently seems to be limited A/B testing since this update has not yet rolled out on most devices. A Brazilian user reported the new user interface when he opened Google Assistant. The redesign arranges cards

Google has also decided to abandon the three-button interface from previous versions of Assistant an
  12. Today at its Google hardware event, Google introduced new mesh routers called Nest Wifi.

  13. "OK Google, turn on the Xbox." Google Assistant now works with the Xbox One. Xbox users could already control their console with Amazon's Alexa and Microsoft's own Cortana, now they can also use Google Assistant.

  16. You're not the voice, try and understand it It'll do till the robo-slaves are ready SINCE I joined INQ, nearly seven years ago (can that be right?), one of my favourite areas has been the emergence of the "smart home", a realm previously the reserve of people with surnames like "Beckham" or "Blofeld". I've been doing a bit of an inventory of my smart home, which started with a couple of Z Wave sockets in 2014 and realised something. I, like a great many people, have been sucked into a complete bastardisation of what a smart home is. Because

  18. Google ordered to halt human review of voice AI recordings over privacy risks A German privacy watchdog has ordered Google to cease manual reviews of audio snippets generated by its voice AI.

  22. Photo by Vlad Savov / The Verge As CES kicks off, Google has a massive presence: monorails, a booth that’s three times larger than last year, and likely a giant pile of news to announce. But ahead of all the actual product news, the company wants to beat its chest a little by announcing some numbers. By the end of the month, it expects that Google Assistant will be on 1 billion devices — up from 500 million this past May. That’s 900 million more than the number Amazon just gave us for Alexa.
