Klipsch enters smart speaker race with ‘The Three | Google Assistant’

If you use an Android phone, then the Google Assistant (Android, iOS) may already be embedded in your life - helping to schedule your calendar, place calls, send texts, and stream media, for example - but the company is always expanding the app with more features.

In all seriousness, various people and tech sites have raised legitimate questions about what our children are learning by the way gadgets increasingly encourage us to just bark a command and wait for it to be carried out.

Google Assistant now also recognizes when you say "please" and "thank you", and will give you an equally polite response in return, making the AI software more human-like than ever before. "But if these are habits you're trying to instill in a little one or polish up yourself, Assistant will respond in kind".

For users of Smart Displays like the Google Home Hub, the firm is adding a lyrics option to Google Play Music, a photo sharing options and broadcast replies among others. "Alright, 5 minutes. Starting now'".

Of course, that's not the only feature added with Assistant's latest update.

Klipsch has smartened up its The Three Heritage Wireless speaker by giving a new version of it Google Assistant voice control. And the Nest Hello video doorbell also now works with your Smart Display to allow for a two-way talkback feature. It's sort of a tablet that you can talk to.
