Nest camera integration with Google Assistant is already live


Google has expanded the capabilities of the Google Home by introducing Voice Match.

Although the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 may have taken the centre stage at the Google event in San Francisco yesterday, one of the other areas of strategic focus was machine learning and AI. There is an inclination towards smart assistants among different platforms as Cortana, Siri and Google Assistant all started with female voice assistants. While many have come to know the Google Assistant's voice to be female, a new update now lets users change the voice of the AI to that of a male's. On and on, you get it. Voice Match is rolling out to available markets today and will be available from the box on new Google Home devices. In addition, they can ask the Google Assistant to make their home warmer, and the system will automatically adjust their connected Nest Thermostat without requiring users to state a particular target temperature. Google is playing catch up now with new Google Home improvements: aside from including support for your phone number, United Kingdom users will also be able to make phone calls with the Home, with all the USA features.

The Google Home platform looks like a ideal match for Nest's series of smart home products and the newly announced partnership is yielding some interesting new features. Assistant says it's going to stream, but it does not. Now Google has made the option live, and users can select between Voice I and Voice II now. For now, Google Chrome OS is compatible with Android apps and is already available on the Pixel phones.
