With an aim to support an open ecosystem, Google has announced to add Voice Match and default speaker selection features to all third party-compatible devices.
“With Voice Match, you can teach Google Assistant to recognise your voice so you can receive personalized results, including calendar reminders or traffic to work, even if you share the device with other people in the household,” Praveen Chandran, Product Manager said.
People can now pick a preferred speaker in the living room for playing music. For example, you can say, “Hey Google, play some jazz,” to your Google Nest Mini in the kitchen and the music will automatically play from your preferred speaker.
Users can set the default music speaker for any Google Assistant-enabled device, by finding the setting menu of your device in the Google Home app. Scroll down to Google Nest Mini and its “Device settings,” then tap Default music speaker to choose the living room speaker you want to use when you play music.
This feature would continue to roll out to more devices in the coming weeks.
“We work closely with all of our third-party partners to make sure your Google Assistant-enabled devices are up to date with the latest security, personalization and helpful features,” said the company.
