[Update: Official] Google accessibility tool Voice Access exits beta, improves Google Assistant integration

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018

Though the smartphone market is relatively mature (some might even say stagnant), there's been a notable lack of progress on accessibility. The simple fact is that not everyone can easily manipulate a smartphone or tablet's touchscreen, and there aren't a lot of cheap or free ways to make it easier.

Though the smartphone market is relatively mature (some might even say stagnant), there's been a notable lack of progress on accessibility. The simple fact is that not everyone can easily manipulate a smartphone or tablet's touchscreen, and there aren't a lot of cheap or free ways to make it easier. That's no doubt why, even in a low-profile beta, Google's voice command navigation app Voice Access climbed to more than a million downloads on the Play Store over the past two years.

You can now ask Google Home to play news videos on your TV

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

The Google Home doesn't have a display of its own, but it's becoming very good at controlling other screens around your house. You can start playback of content from Google Photos, YouTube, and others with a simple voice command, turning the Home into a voice-controlled TV remote. Google has now added the ability to easily watch news videos on your TV using Assistant commands.

Google Home already responds to "play the news" or "play [category] news," which starts playing a relevant news summary or podcast through the speakers.

You know how you can say both "OK Google" and "Hey Google" to Google Home and it will respond to the two hotwords without any discrimination?

You know how you can say both "OK Google" and "Hey Google" to Google Home and it will respond to the two hotwords without any discrimination? The same isn't true of Assistant on your Android phone: it only answers to "OK Google." Wait, scratch that, it wasn't true as the command is now working on phones too.

Alright, it's not live for everyone just yet. For example, it was working flawlessly for me yesterday on my S7 Edge, now it doesn't want to answer me.

It's the little things you guys. Sometimes, you're sitting in the living room and you just want to turn on your TV without reaching for that remote.

“OK Google, what’s this song?” is finally coming to Google Assistant

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

We don't distribute "finally" in titles gratuitously. In order for a piece of news to earn its "finally," it has to be a popular request and one that's been long in the making and, more often than not, it has to be so logical that its absence baffled us. But today, we have a much-earned "finally" for song search on Assistant.

One of the most beloved features of Google Search has long been asking it what's playing to identify songs around you.

Assistant voice command lets you take a screenshot and instantly gets it ready for sharing

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

Assistant's history with screenshots is long and fraught with complications. First, Now on Tap added a screenshot option, then it was removed and re-added when it was renamed to Screen Search, and when the Assistant came, the screenshot option was nowhere to be found but it was added again through Assistant's What's on my screen feature. But it looks like Google has made it even easier to take a screenshot and it no longer requires special know-how.
