You Can Now Ask Google Assistant To Read Specific News Stories

Posted by at 7:35 am on August 10, 2018

Google has matched Google Assistant with the new Google News to make it easier for people to find the stories they want to hear. People with Android phones and Google Home products can ask to hear specific news stories by asking Assistant “What’s the latest on NASA?” and similar queries.

On devices such as the new Lenovo Smart Display, Assistant will find relevant videos to show. On Google Home speakers and Android phones, Assistant will read out excerpts from preferred news sources.

Google says this functionality is limited to the U.S. for now.
