"The Google Assistant doesn't do EVERYTHING".

With the help of WaveNet technology by DeepMind, the Google Assistant is expected to sound more natural compared to other similar voice assistants and AI services. In the demo, Google's Lilian Rincon asked the assistant who Camila Cabello was, adjusted the temperature in her living room, and even placed an order at Starbucks. For example, you can create a Custom Routine for family dinner, and kick it off by saying "Hey Google, dinner's ready" and the Assistant can turn on your favorite music, turn off the TV, and broadcast "dinner time!" to everyone in the house. Multiple Actions means that you can ask Google Assistant complicated, multi-part questions, and it will understand how to separate the answers. We also noted the "Continued Conversation" feature a while ago. Rather than demanding your computerized assistant around, you can now say "please" and "thank you" as you would to a real person, and Google Assistant will understand. That's what Google wants us to believe especially with the introduction of the Google Duplex. Hopefully, the call will be natural but with one goal in mind-to reserve or book for you.
