Google Assistant will now support Spotify

Google follows Amazon with multi-step smart home routines and kid-friendly accounts

For those who are just starting to use the voice assistant, it would be a little tricky to find out how it works.

Google has made it no secret that AI and machine learning is its new obsession, and Google Assistant is the user-facing interface to all of that. With Broadcasts, you can send a message to your Google Home speakers and have it spoken out loud by the Google Assistant to everyone in the room.

Google Home owners have always been able to control Spotify from their speakers, but that's not the only place that Google Assistant calls home. So, it only makes sense that Google adds the voice assistant in the Chromebook.

Last and somewhat the least, there is now a Google Assistant app on Google Play Store. What's more, the voice quality too has been improved from 8-bit to 16-bit at 24Khz sampling rate. Both free and premium Spotify clients will have the capacity to utilize the voice commands, similar to, "alright Google, play some rock music on Spotify".

A separate report from 9To5Google claims that Google voice assistant might now come to the Chromebooks. For now, Google Chrome OS is compatible with Android apps and is already available on the Pixel phones. The ability to translate 40 languages in conjunction with the Pixel Bud earphones and the new Pixel smartphone is another noteworthy addition. By offering a newer voice option, there will be better diversity of different kind of voices for users' preferences.

The broadened support roll out joins Google's bevy of new item declarations today, including Google Home Max, a vast keen home speaker meant to go up against Apple's HomePod and Sonos. This is further bolstered with add on Google accounts for kids under 13 years of age, along with 50 different activities and experiences tailored specifically for children.
