There are many different activities with which Google Assistant can help you. The list in the article below includes managing smart devices like lights, heating and music; making searches; checking weather and flights; and setting timers or appointments.
The range of activities will only grow with time. Google (and Alphabet) are driving to provide services wherever we are; and it is easy to use voice commands as long as the technology can understand what we mean and as long as we are not interrupting others.
Google Assistant is likely to become as pervasive for general computer use as the company’s search tool as it endeavours to embed its products and services into every aspect of our lives and work. Over the years, Google has launched and dropped numerous services, but the Google Assistant could become the glue that ties them all together.
