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.

Internet giant Google has officially introduced the new Assistant Ambient Mode for Android phones and tablets at IFA 2019 Berlin.

With the Ambient Mode, one can browse through pictures on Google Photos, control smart home devices, access music playback, see upcoming calendar appointments and more.

“Google Assistant’s Ambient Mode is a new visual overview that makes it easier to see notifications and reminders, start a playlist and control smart home devices on the lockscreen of your device. When you are done, your screen will turn into a personal digital photo frame linked to your Google Photos account to add another personal touch,” Chris Turkstra, Product Management Director, Google Assistant, wrote in a blog post on Thursday.
