Another thing that Google introduced to Google Home was voice recognition. 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.

Other miscellaneous additions to Google Assistant include the music identification feature bundled in with the new Pixel phones, in addition to the ability of the Assistant to send directions straight to your phone when queried on any device supporting the Google Assistant.

That's not all that's new, of course. It's been a long time coming, but it can finally speak and understand languages other than English (US, UK, and Australian accents).

For example, customers will be able to use the Assistant to view footage from their Nest Cam on a television with a connected Chromecast, just by asking a Google Home speaker to play it.

Apart from improvements in recognising user voice inputs, the Google Assistant also received a major upgrade to how it generates its own speech as well. All by using only your voice.

The Home will also receive integration for Android's Find My Phone feature, which allows you to locate any Android device of your own using a browser or an app.

What's more, the Nest will also support Google routines for features like arming your home security systems when you go to bed, just by saying "Hey Google, goodnight".

Google Assistant can be used to launch the apps, ask various questions and carry useful tasks. Assistant says it's going to stream, but it does not. Now available on nearly all of Google's different devices and platforms, not to mention integrating with third-party platforms, it has the potential to become what pundits and even conspiracists have been looking for: Google OS.
