Even so, we're going to see the most of the two assistants in products showcases by other companies. "It's just a question of whether its feasible to Chromecast users", he said.
And for me, it finally gives me the possibility of a custom Chrome Search Engine that will make finding Assistant apps 10 times faster than reaching for my phone when writing articles for Android Police. In all, from Google Maps directions to ordering food with the Panera voice app, Google Assistant is now able to fulfill more than a million actions.
Google also highlights prototype demos involving its Things can be found in the NXP booth, such as "HandBot, DrawBot, 3D printer, and AI artwork T-shirts".
