Google Assistant Released on Play Store, But There's Nothing to Rejoice

Google Assistant is getting more integrations with Nest, which is also owned by Google. Applying a custom icon set is like giving your home screen a fresh coat of paint and is among the basic rights of every Android user out there! But this news is nothing to rejoice about.

In addition to managing both your streaming and personal music collection, Google Play Music makes it easy to purchase and consume other forms of media you can enjoy on your devices, like movies, podcasts, and e-books. In the latest update, Google is pushing the Assistant to the Play Store for a speedier and more streamlined update process. The Android already has an option to summon the Google Assistant by long pressing the Home button.

What's more, you'll also be able to send a song to another Chromecast-enabled speaker by saying out loud something like: "Ok Google, play Today's Top Hits on my Chromecast". Installing the wrong app store repository could at the very least get your device broken from various malwares or at the worst you could have your vital information stolen. Now available on nearly all of Google's different devices and platforms, not to mention integrating with third-party platforms, it has the potential to become what pundits and even conspiracists have been looking for: Google OS.

Well, it hasn't been much since we have gotten our hands on the new update, and we haven't yet spotted any significant difference yet, the app, however, seems to be a lot smoother to use which happens in the case of every update and can also be reciprocated as the placebo effect.

Though now it will not work on Chromebooks but maybe Google has launched this app for adding Google assistant support on Chromebooks later.

The Google Assistant now has a new voice. The app acts like a shortcut to start the Google assistant instead of holding the home button on your smartphone.
