Google Assistant will now support Spotify

Google Home Mini Google's latest smart speaker

Google today announced that products from its fellow Alphabet-owned company, Nest, will be more deeply integrated with its family of Home smart speakers, allowing for multi-step "routines" you can trigger with simple phrases like "good morning". The company also brought forward kid-friendly accounts for Home.

Google has expanded the capabilities of the Google Home by introducing Voice Match.

These new integrations will function best with Nest products.




Familiar Faces program will be powered by Google Assistant and tell you exactly who is ringing your Nest doorbell.

Ever since the original Google Home launched, Google has marketed the device as the ideal home companion - a device that can help the whole family with searches, schedules, recipes, alarm clocks, music playback, et cetera. By subscribing to the Nest Aware subscription, you will also be able to take advantage from the facial recognition feature. Once the user switches to the Voice II, a huskier AI assistant will be activated across the devices including iOS apps, Pixel phones or the Google Home speaker. Now any user with a phone that has the Google Assistant enabled can say things like: "OK Google, play Spotify" or "OK Google, play some dreampop on Spotify".

Broadcast is a new feature that allows one Google Home device to broadcast a message to the other devices in the home. It means that if dad says, "How is the traffic to work?', the device will be able to recognize the user and it will analyze the traffic conditions to the user's workplace".
