Google Assistant is finally coming to G Suite, starting with the Calendar app in beta within Googles enterprise platform.

In a blog post, which coincided with the announcement at the company’s Cloud Next conference in San Francisco, the tech giant outlined how the integration will work.

“Users with G Suite accounts can start testing with Assistant starting today,” said the company.

“G Suite is integrating with Google Assistant, specifically with Calendar,” said David Thacker, Vice President of Product Management, G Suite.

The Google Assistant can now connect with more than 5,000 devices for your home -- up from 1,500 this January, Google has announced.

“Now when you sign in and switch to your G Suite account, you can use your Assistant to help you prepare for the work day,” he said.

Since the integration is just an enterprise feature, it would not work on Assistant-compatible device synced to an individual’s personal account.

In addition, the company is also bringing other improvements including third-party connectivity in Cloud Search, updates to Hangouts Meet to help businesses stay connected and “connected sheets” feature to let workers collaborate on up to 10 billion rows of data right from within Sheets, the post noted.

With Frozen (movie) fever taking over, Google Assistant has a new skill that now lets users have characters from the film read them a story.

The new update is currently available across all Google Assistant devices by default. To activate it, users just need to say: “Hey Google, tell me a Frozen story.”

When you do, you’ll launch the skill (there’s some music and an intro), which takes you to a campfire with some of the film’s main characters. After the intro has finished playing, you or your child can select a character you’d like to tell you a story, Life hacker reported on Sunday.
