Google today made its Google Assistant even more powerful with a handful of new functions. First, the Assistant for Google Home speakers can now easily set personalized alarms. People can specify which song, artist, playlist, or radio station plays at the appointed time, rather than a traditional alarm. Google Home also adds tools for managing video content. People can ask Google for information regarding what channel their favorite show plays on, set reminders to watch that show, and use voice casting to tune in at the right time on YouTube TV. Google worked with Netflix to improve its voice-based integration with the popular video service. Google Assistant can take advantage of voice matching to ensure Netflix opens the proper user profile. For example, one person in a household can say “Hey Google, play Stranger Things on Netflix" and it will recognize the voice and open the appropriate Netflix profile. Users will have to train Assistant on their Google Home products to recognize the difference voices. Last, Google Assistant now gives Google Play Music subscribers access to their entire uploaded library. People can easily request to hear all the music purchased from or uploaded to their Play Music account. These features are available to the Google Home, Google Home Mini, and Google Home Max speakers.
