Google Assistant updated with loads of family-oriented activities in the US


Google Assistant is arguably the best personal digital assistant not just because it offers plenty of features and works well on just about any compatible platform, but also because Google improves it all the time.

The latest set of new features added to Google Assistant target families with children. Starting today, Google Assistant has more than 50 new games, activities, and stories especially designed for families with kids.

The new features are available on Android device and Google Home speaker in the United States. Here are a few examples of things that Google Assistant users will be able to ask with “Ok Google:”

  • Let’s learn;
  • Play space trivia;
  • Talk to Everyday Heroes;
  • Help me with my homework.

  • Let’s play a game;
  • Play Mickey Mouse Adventure;
  • Talk to What’s My Justice League Super Hero?;
  • Play Sports Illustrated Kids Trivia.

  • Tell me a story;
  • Tell me the story of The-Not-So-Scaredy cat;
  • Play Strangest Day Ever;
  • Play Jungle Adventure.

All of the above and much more will be rolled out today, but be patient if they're not available right away, as it may take some time to propagate to all compatible devices in the United States.
