  • Google Home Smart Speaker Review: Smartest Speaker You Can Buy?

Google is working hard to improve compatibility for existing devices as well.

Google also said it will help businesses promote their new products through its marketing channels, which could be one of the most helpful parts of the new programme, bearing in mind Google's massive reach.

In a blog post today, Google has announced three major new features coming to Google Assistant in Wear OS.

Google Assistant can now "control" more than 5,000 smart devices, the search giant boasted this week. The new feature is now available to all Wear OS by Google smartwatches.




Google is putting its money where its mouth is with a plan to plow capital into startups that use its proprietary voice assistant technology, including ones building new skillsets for its Google Assistant platform and new hardware to host the digital assistants. In the coming days, you'll be able to access more Assistant Actions and get contextual suggestions when you interact with the watch.

Moving on, Assistant will also be able to respond through voice in certain scenarios. For example, if you ask for today's weather, it may suggest a weekly forecast. Sources from HDFC Securities said that it will be the first broking service to offer such services- a virtual assistant service through voice based IoT devices. That means all the Actions that require you to say "Talk to [thing]" will work on your wearable. If your Wear OS has a built-in speaker or you have a set of Bluetooth headphones paired up, you'll hear audible cues as you would with other Assistant-equipped devices.

Turn on all the things with the Google AssistantWith the Google Assistant, you can easily control all the connected devices in your home, from lights, to thermostats, to appliances, all in one simple place.

The new functionalities are being rolled out incrementally, so you might not see them go live on your device just yet.
