Google Assistant

Google Assistant is Here

Today we announced a new family of hardware [] that’s a step toward making sure that no matter where you are, or what you’re doing, you can have the best of Google by your side. The Pixel is the first phone with the Google Assistant built in. With Google Home, our voice-activated speaker powered by the Google Assistant, just say “Ok Google” to get answers and help around the house. With Chromecast Ultra and Google Wifi, your home becomes even more connected. And our new Daydream View headset and controller lets you explore new worlds in virtual reality with just your phone. These all do different things, serve different purposes — but they all deliver Google, the way we intended it.

Great hardware is powered by great software. And a beautiful, intuitive device allows the underlying technology to shine. As the range of devices in our lives expands, we’re seeing unprecedented advances in software as a result of investing in technologies like search, machine learning and AI, which benefits things like translation, voice recognition, image recognition and natural language processing. It’s still early days, but when all of that works together, the Google Assistant allows you to get things done, bringing you the information you need, when you need it, wherever you are.

Of course, we know we can’t do it alone. We’re building with partners in mind, so when you talk to your Assistant, you’re able to better connect with developers, publishers, and businesses.

While we are at the beginning of this journey, I can already see the tremendous strides we’re making with machine learning and AI, which gives me confidence that we’re going to do some amazing things for users over the next 10 years.
