Google announced on March 9, 2018 that it is updating voice-enabled assistant by developing device specific commands

Google rolled out actions on Google Assistant in seven new languages recently. The new feature of voice-enabled assistant allows developers to build device-specific commands for it. Currently, developers can create custom commands to an extent using actions, which essentially are apps that users control with their voice by talking to Google Assistant. Actions on google are meant for developers to build integrations for Google’s voice assistant. Third-party developers create conversation-based actions on the assistant, which means new actions on google will result in new assistant features for users as well, which will allow Google Assistant to understand particular voice commands.

According to blog post, users can access media playback on smart speakers and Android handsets. New features such as TV show clips, relaxation sounds, news briefings, interactive stories, and more will be available. Furthermore, users can now use voice commands to pause or replay media. Also, a media player will appear on the user’s smartphone. They will be able to turn off the display and still continue listening to the audio. TV channels such as The Daily Show, Calm, and CNBC will have new features available for playback and general show information.

Although Assistant was featured in in smartphones and Google Home speakers initially, it is present in many devices such as smoke detectors and alarm clocks. In order to encourage the usage, the new feature aims to add more functionality on such specialty devices. Google uses the instance of turning on a connected oven. Earlier, users would say something such as, “Ok Google, turn on the oven,” now they will be able to give more detailed commands like, “Ok Google, set the oven to convection and preheat to 350-degrees.” Esquire and Forbes are websites that have added the new functionality. The subscriptions were one of the original features of Google Assistant when it was launched. However, new things in such as daily updates and push notifications will be updated in near future.
