What's in store for the Google Assistant this year

But there are also moments when a screen would make the Assistant even more helpful, like when you need to learn how to cut a pineapple, and the best way is to watch a video. It's great for basic tasks like checking the weather and setting alarms, of course, but did you know that it had a magic 8 ball minigame, and that you can ask it what position you should play in Quidditch?

Google says that Assistant is now running on 400 million devices around the world, and that number should reach a billion within a year. Well, the voice command we use now is the only Google Now which made its debut years ago. They have also re-done the version on our phones too.

Of course, with over one million actions already available on Google Assistant, just finding out what the Assistant can do can be a bit daunting.

Sorted by categories, it really is a comprehensive thesaurus of all the interactions Google's useful piece of software is capable of, and it's enough to supercharge the experience of even the most devoted fans.

Be sure to check out the announcement at the source link. Soon users will have an option to reserve a parking space with SpotHero or order favorite drink or food from Starbucks from the road.

Right now, drivers are expected to pair their phones to their cars to activate the Assistant, but that may not be the case forever.

Google also notes being able to use any Assistant phone, speaker, or TV to check the status of your auto and control certain aspects, like locking the doors. "Actions include features built by Google-like directions on Google Maps-and those that come from developers, publishers and other third parties, like working out with Fitbit Coach", says Huffman. We can't wait to see what you do with the Assistant this year.
