Google releases a major update for Assistant with continued conversations and more

Google Duplex assistant is coming to more states and restaurants

Google Duplex is Rolling Out to iOS Devices in The ‘Next Few Weeks’

Google Duplex is already usable in 43 states across the USA, but it is now restricted to first-party Google Pixel devices.

It remains to be seen when support will go live in the remainder of the non-supported states as it's possible local regulations may prohibit the use of a feature like this for various reasons.

Ask about the weather for "today", for instance, and once Google Assistant has answered you can say something like "what about tomorrow?" straight away, with Continued Conversation ensuring the Assistant understands the context.

On Google Home speakers, the LEDs remain illuminated to tell you the speaker is still listening (it shuts off after a few seconds).

If you have a problem with your Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL phone, and live in the US, you can now mail it in to Google for repairs. After saying a "Hey Google" or "OK Google" command, you can make a follow-up request without having to say "Hey Google" / "OK Google" every single time.

Let the Assistant be your interpreter: Have family members or friends who don't speak the same language?

Google confirmed to Android Central that Continued Conversations is rolling out now to all Smart Displays.

The Interpreter mode feature supports 26 global languages including Hindi, English, Arabic, Korean and Portuguese among others. All without needing to say "Hey Google" again. And with this release, we added controls for adjusting the volume of any device in the group.

The mode first arrived on the Google Home Hub and is expected to be made available on more third-party devices from Lenovo, LG and JBL over the next few months. And in those instances when you don't want to wake up your partner when setting an alarm late at night, you can find a quick touch setting from the Quick Settings menu bar of your Smart Display. Now it's expanding support to more devices. One of the most popular of these is Continued Conversations.
