"You'll need to have the latest version of Google Play Books for Android or iOS installed to listen to all of these great stories," Eric Liu, Product Manager, Google Assistant, wrote in a blog post. Pixabay

There is good news for parents. If you are not particularly good at reading bedtime stories to your kids, just ask the Google Assistant on your phone to do so and you will be able to hear the famous tales from the Panchtantra or other books.

Whether you have an Android or an iOS phone, every time you say “Hey Google, tell me a story”, the Assistant tells you a tale. If you hear the “Truth Will Never Die” one day, it could be “Don’t be Greedy” next time, or “Don’t Trust Anybody” at some other time.
