Google is rolling out support for the “Continued Conversation” feature on Smart Displays to allow users to a natural back-and-forth conversation with the Google Assistant instead of having to repeat the “Hey Google” command every time.
“After you initially trigger the Assistant with a request, the Assistant will stay active for long enough to respond to follow up questions. The feature is part of the Settings menu under Preferences,” Bibo Xu, Product Manager, Google Assistant wrote in a blog-post on Friday.
The feature was first rolled out for only audio to Google Home, Home Mini and Home Max products.
It is currently only available in English across Smart Displays from Google, Lenovo, JBL and LG.
Apart from this, the search-engine giant has also made several features available on its Smart Displays including “Interpreter Mode” and single dashboard control to control devices connected via Assistant.
US based search engine giant Google has revealed that it will add more than 120 games to its its subscription-based game service ‘Stadia’ this year.
More than 10 games in the first half of this year alone that will only be available on Stadia when they launch.
“Looking at our upcoming lineup, we are tracking more than 120 games coming to Stadia in 2020, and are targeting more than ten games in the first half of this year alone that will be only available on Stadia when they launch. We are working with our partners to share more on those games soon,” the company said in a statement recently.
In the next three months, Google plans to release support for 4K web gaming, improved assistant functionality for web gaming, additional Android phone support and wireless web gameplay via the Stadia controller.
“Gamers can expect more features coming to Stadia in Q1 and beyond. A key benefit of our platform is that we can add these features without any updates or downloads, and we are starting to roll out the following over the next three months: support for 4k gaming on the Web, add further Assistant functionality when playing on the Web, support additional Android phones, wireless gameplay on the Web through the Stadia controller,” the company added.
The company recently released the last batch of games it promised for 2019, including Borderlands 3 and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 while Ghost Recon Breakpoint is coming soon.
