“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.

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.
