It showed how truly smart Google Assistant could be in talking with someone like a real human would.

Now, the feature is available in more locations (just not Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, or Texas, for some unknown reason) and on more handsets. That said, Continued Conversation is available only to US residents who have their Assistant languages set to English (United States).

To enable the feature on a device like the Google Home Hub or the Lenovo Smart Display, head to the Google Home app. Tap the Account tab, then Settings, then open the Assistant tab and choose Continued Conversation. Concerns about Google's nondisclosure of some processes within its Duplex app have emerged ever since the company initiated a demo previous year.

Spotify to Offer 6-Months of Free Premium to Galaxy S10 Owners
Samsung and Spotify revealed a new partnership in August while Samsung was launching the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 . The offer is also only available to new subscribers, and not to existing or previous customers.

Users can ask Assistant to "turn on interpreter mode" to invoke the feature on compatible devices and choose which languages they desire to use.

Are you seeing Continued Conversations on any of your Smart Displays? The Assistant also automatically emails you about the reservation and adds it to your calendar. It didn't work on smart displays like the Home Hub, but that changes today. Preferences? Continued Conversation and hitting the toggle. Swipe down from the top edge to reveal your home view to control cameras, doorbells, lights, plugs, thermostats and more.

Google's new update means you can add your smart display to a speaker group, and play music throughout the house.

‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett indicted on 16 felony counts by grand jury
His lawyers last month said they were conducting a thorough investigation for the purposes of mounting a defence of the actor. He also said that the men "poured an unknown chemical substance on him" and that one man wrapped a rope around his neck.

If you want a single device to tell you the weather forecast, set your alarms, operate all your other compatible devices and do a lot more, then smart displays are worth a look. With it, you don't have to repeatedly state "Ok Google / Hey Google" after every command or query. You'll play five rounds of trivia culminating in the final round of challenging "Guesstimation Station" brain teasers where you'll answer questions like, "How many dimples does a golf ball have?" Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
