My kids love our Google Home devices. My daughter knows how to envoke the smart-assistant and fire up her favorites songs so that she and her brother can dance around the living room without a care in the world. Other days, we like to ask Google what sounds different animals make or set a timer […]
Google Assistant has become the central focus for Google ever since their event in October of 2016. With the roll-out in full swing to many devices across multiple categories, Google Assistant is becoming extremely pervasive. The flagship device for Google Assistant, Google Home, is also powered by a varied version of Chrome OS. As we watch Assistant fully integrate into Chrome OS, we realize the Assitant story is just beginning.
A little over two weeks ago, Gabriel posted about the addition of the Google Assistant coming to the Chrome OS App Launcher. As Chromebooks all eagerly await the arrival of the Google Assistant (apart from the Pixelbook), we may be seeing the first sign of how it will get integrated across the board in Chrome […]
From time to time, Chromebooks we track in the repositories end up taking unexpected shifts or getting scrapped altogether. It’s almost impossible to say why, but things don’t always work out the way we expect them to. Such is the case – at least in part – with the Chromebook we only know as ‘Cheza’ […]
For non-Pixelbook owners, the Google Assistant has been an elusive mistress. For months, we have continued to uncover evidence of developers laying the groundwork for the Assistant’s debut on other Chrome devices. Yet, a year and a half later, there’s still no word from Google as to if or when this Pixelbook-exclusive feature could come […]
Just 11 days ago I wrote an article titled New Chromebook ‘Atlas’ Could Be #madebyGoogle. In that article we looked at a few reasons we believed ‘Atlas’ could possibly be one of the next #madebyGoogle Chromebooks. ONE of the next, you ask? Yeah, I have a gut feeling that there will be two or three […]
It has been a long time coming but today Lenovo made good on a July release of the first-ever Smart Display featuring the Google Assistant. Teased at CES this year, Lenovo leads the way for other OEMs including JBL and LG who also had Smart Displays present in Las Vegas.
Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past week, you’re probably aware that Amazon’s annual Prime Day shenanigans will soon be upon us. Thirty-hours of Prime Member exclusive deals will begin Monday the 16th and we’ll be sharing all the best Chromebook and related deals as they arrive so you don’t miss out on […]
Google has launched a basketful of discounts in their store to get you some summer savings but BH Photo has created a massive list of bundles on Home and Chromecast devices that can save you even more if you’re in the market.
We were sitting around the office yesterday, listening to music as we often do, when I happened across an article from TechCrunch reporting that users all over the globe were experiencing some major glitches with their Google Home and Chromecast devices.
Yesterday, Google announced the arrival of a feature for the Google Assistant that was shown off at I/O back in May: Continued Conversations. We’ll talk very briefly about what Continued Conversations are and then show you how you can get it all set up and running.
We’ve seen quite a few speaker makers get in on making a Google Assistant powered device, but there are still some high-end offerings I’ve personally wanted to see show up on the scene.
One of the highlights of CES 2018(for us anyway) was the walkthrough of the upcoming smart-displays featuring the Google Assistant. JBL, Lenovo and LG all had their pre-production devices out for the show in Google’s massive playground outside the Las Vegas convention center. In case you missed it or just want to take a second […]
