Google Introduces New Family-Oriented Assistant Features

Google has added new features to Assistant on Mother's Day to commemorate the occasion. Broadcast is now available to users in a newly formed "Google Family Group," which includes their smartphones, according to the company. In addition, the Family Bell is being translated into more languages. More tales, games, and Easter eggs are among the other new features.

Not only Google Home devices in different rooms, but also Android and iOS devices will be able to receive the broadcast. “Hey Google, tell my family how about lunch at noon,” one user will be able to say, and the family will receive a notification and respond by voice.

The family Bell, on the other hand, is similar to an alarm clock. Users may set a bell for their children to clean up or return to their homework, but they can only do so in English. The functionality will be extended to eight additional languages in the coming week, including Dutch, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Users will also be able to play new games, such as “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?”, as part of the new upgrade. There are also new songs for Google to sing, such as the handwashing song or the brush your teeth song – simple tunes that assist children in performing specific housework.
