Chromebook Google Assistant: Talk to your laptop soon
Google makes that known in a movie. It is not yet clear when the speech assistant will come to the Chromebook. They do say that this will happen “soon”. When the time comes, Google will release a software update so that the United States Google Assistant also works on your laptop.
With that, you can talk to the digital help on almost all devices. In the summer of 2018, the Assistant came to all Android smartphones, after which the Google Home and Wear OS smartwatches followed. Many smart speakers and headphones also listen to ‘Hey Google’.
The Google Assistant has been available on the Pixel Slate and Pixelbook for some time, but these laptops never officially came to the United States. The second even has a special button to activate the voting aid. Google finally takes the opportunity to announce two new laptops: the Asus Chromebook Flip C434 and Acer Chromebook Spin 13.
