Soon You Won't Have To Say 'Hey Google' To Launch Google Assistant

The code details how you'll create a new hotword and teach Google Assistant to recognise it. Google also notes that the original "Hey Google" and "OK Google" will still work, even if you add another option. This new feature enables the Google Assistant to understand particular voice commands.

Also starting today, Actions will support media playback and controls on speakers and Android devices. Google will allow developers of Actions to plug into digital purchases including paid app purchases, in-app purchases, in-app subscriptions and the likes. Basically, this means that Google Assistant users will have access to more audio experiences, including relaxing sound, clips from favorite TV shows, as well as news briefings. Voice commands can be used to pause or replay media, and a media player will appear on your phone.

Assistant Actions now support something Google is calling "Custom Device Actions".

The move would allow E! to censor any unforeseen moments that may arise, like they did during the recent Golden Globes. Rival broadcast Access Hollywood will reportedly also keep the talk of Seacrest's alleged behavior alive.

The Assistant was first rolled out in smartphones and Google Home speakers, but now it is present in many devices such as smoke detectors and alarm clocks. For example, you can tell Assistant you want a daily update on cryptocurrency prices from CoinBase. Esquire and Forbes are some of the websites that have added the new functionality. Google uses the example of turning on a connected oven. Now you can say a more specific command such as "Ok Google, set the oven to convection and preheat to 350-degrees".
