Google Assistant can now control Chromecasts from your phone

Google Assistant can now control Chromecasts from your phone

But the AirPods, Apple's truly wireless earbuds, seem to still be fully functional with products from other platforms, specifically Android smartphones.

Assistant is a little bit fragmented (if you hadn't noticed) with Google Home, Phones, Android Wear, TV and even Auto all having different amounts of integration. If not, Google Duo will connect your video call to anyone with the app installed. This particular functionality existed in numerous camera apps over the years, though the highly automated nature of the Google Camera app's feature makes it a somewhat unique offering; smoothening out your skin textures is as simple as tapping a button and letting the service do the rest while you worry about framing.

If you and the person you're video calling are on a carrier that supports ViLTE video calling, your video calls will be routed through the carrier's ViLTE service.

What happens when two large, immovable objects are slammed against each other at terminal velocity? In 17 at-bats, Judge has only hit into play four times, including just one home run.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were just announced last week, along with Google's own protective cases. That is actually the same action that you use on the AirPods when you trigger Siri when you're on an iPhone. So sometimes, it may not work when your phone is unlocked, but if it is locked, weirdly enough it should be fine. Only if they have the Pixel launcher set as a system app will Google Now and the homepage and all that good stuff appear.

You can download AirpodsforGA from the Google Play Store for free. As such, I recommend you take all caution when deciding whether or not this piece of software is meant for your device - or if you're going to risk it all to run with the newest in new.
