Google Assistant gets smarter, faster: Here is everything you can get it to do

Google's Intelligent Voice Assistant will be faster and smarter. It will be easier for the users, because it will not ask them to say OK, before giving each command.

Google Assistant, the intelligent wizard based on the voice of the search giant, will be faster and smarter, with a clear focus on the intuitive use of personal references. The Google Assistant will include personal references and context. So when you say "Hello Google, bring me to mom", you know where you are and what the weather is like, as well as traffic along the way. Of course, it depends on whether you have shared these personal preferences with the wizard.
"It's not fair to mom, but you can say it's your sister or any member of your family, even for temporary reasons, instead of asking to be driven to your hotel Mountain View Hilton Garden Inn, you can ask the assistant to take you directly to your hotel, "explained Austin Chang, director of product management, Google Assistant.
The personal information that users choose to share can be managed in the View tab of Settings, as well as the activity history and privacy controls. The tab will expand to include additional personal details as well.
For users who do not wish to save their personal information, the personal reference will not work in the same way and a user must call the full name or full number if they wish to call a family member. For example, your mother's name or full address to get to a place.
There are also personalized suggestions for recipes, local events, and podcasts under development for Nest Hub Max. "If my wife asks me what I should cook for dinner, the assistant shows more Asian recipes, because they are personalized according to her voice and she knows what she likes according to previous research," Chang explained. 
Google Assistant has also been updated with a new way of driving, focused on navigation, calls and messages, while providing access to the media. The driving mode contains personalized recommendations, such as dinner reservations or even podcasting from where you left it in your Nest Hub.
Last year, at I / O, Google Duplex was one of the most discussed features, simply because of its ability to make dinner reservations or appointments for haircuts in a way that seemed perfectly human. However, this feature is only available for a small group of people in the United States.
This year, a technology similar to Google Duplex has arrived for the mobile Web. Duplex can perform complex tasks such as filling out car rental forms without human assistance. By taking advantage of the details of a user's flight, travel dates and other personal information, you can fill in forms online. Of course, a human will have to confirm before continuing.
"This not only helps you to fill out the form, but it also waits for human confirmation of things like car seats, and for security and privacy reasons, you need to authenticate or enter the CVV number on your computer. As a result, it combines all these technologies and helps you navigate complex tasks in a simple conversational effect, which will reach Android phones later this year, "he said.
Google insists that its new generation assistant is ten times faster, since the 100 GB voice models have been reduced to less than 1 GB. The next generation of Google assistants will be limited to Pixel 4 phones from their launch this fall .
Finally, it will be easier for users to stop their alarms or the timer, because they no longer need to say "Ok, Google" for these actions. A simple "stop" will do the trick.
