“OK, Google, make me some coffee”: This will be possible by end-2020
News - Jan 09, 2020
Google Assistant is used by 500 million active users a month. A plan is to manage Goggle with our voice by the end of 2020 – if we say, “Hey, Google, read/translate it for me” – it will do it for us. A Google reader and translator to 42 languages is currently in a testing phase, as VentureBeat exclusively reports.
As announced at the start of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, organised on January 07-10, Google aims to build in mikes for remote voice recognition, so that these devices can respond to voice commands in the future for playing music, checking weather conditions or replying to questions in even more TV sets.
It was also announced at the Show that by the end of this year you would be able to demand your TV set to turn on / turn off or start/stop a smart device at a moment of your preference. For instance, you can say, “Hey, Google, turn on the coffee machine at 6 PM.” This is only one of a myriad of examples which will be possible in the very near future.
Even if you say, “OK, Google, share my contacts” – Google Assistant will copy all the contacts from your smartphone to a targeted screen so that you can use them, namely call people via a TV set.
