Google Assistant to get features like Webpage reading, Sticky notes and more!

At today’s Consumer Electronics Show, Google has announced an array of new features for its very own Google Assistant. These features launched by the tech giant are expected to increase the productivity and accuracy of its digital assistant. So, let’s take a look at what Google has in store for us today!

Schedule Actions

Schedule Actions feature is one of the first in our list. This feature basically aims towards increasing connectivity between smart gadgets and the Google Assistant. By the name, you can guess that this feature enables you to schedule or decide the action performed by your smart devices. For e.g. you can decide the On and Off schedule of your smart box or any gadget you prefer with the help of your Google Assistant.

Apart from the upcoming smart gadgets, you can use this feature with devices currently available in the market like Philips HDMI Sync Box and August Smart Lock.

Sticky Notes

You can post a piece of important information or any notes on the display of your smart gadgets, and the info posted by you will be available for reading to your family members or important colleagues. One more thing, the notes posted will be portrayed on any side of the display. This property by Google will help you to maintain communication with your family and prevent any misconceptions and issues.

Be My Interpreter

Last month, the company announced that the Google Assistant will have a new interpreter mode, which works as a real-time translating facility for all the devices.

Recently Google has partnered with systems integrators Volara and SONIFI, and the outcome of which is that the Interpreter mode by Google is about to get expanded for places like airports, stadiums, and hotels. The accessibility for this feature is likely to be increased for devices like smart speakers and smart displays.

New Privacy Controls

Apart from all of these user-friendly features, Google has also updated some new privacy controls for its digital assistant. Now you can say things like “Hey Google, are you saving my audio data?” If you want to find out the level of privacy, you have with your Google Assistant.

Another one is “Hey Google, that wasn’t for you,” you can use this command for undoing any kind of information you have given to the assistant. This command comes in handy when you want the assistant to forget something which you have shared with it.

Read It

The ‘Read It’ feature by Google allows the assistant to read out a webpage for the user. It is known as Webpage Reading, and it is not a thing of the future, but Google has stated that their version of Webpage Reading will be more precise and natural-sounding.

The ability to highlight text while reading and auto-scrolling are some of the rumored traits of this feature. You can convert your content into more than 42 languages. The reason Google is certain about the productivity of this feature is because of the development by Mountain View Giant on it.

Conclusion

In the end, the company announced the increased support of the assistant in gadgets like Smart Tvs or Cars with a built-in Android system. By the looks of it, it seems like Google wants the assistant to be the standard for a voice-powered assistant!
