In order to make Google Assistant more practical, the company finally opened up custom command permissions to third-party products. As a result, a large number of manufacturers can easily invoke Google Voice Assistant in their smart products and use additional commands to bring a more powerful experience. Currently built-in Assistant devices are limited to using Google's preset common commands such as on/off and dimming. As for the additional features, they can be added through Actions, but additional steps are required each time they are used.
If you want to build a more advanced product, this restriction is obviously quite annoying. But now, Google seems to want to give some of the work to the manufacturer to give it more flexibility in order to make Assistant more useful.
For example, a stove manufacturer can pre-program voice commands for specific settings, such as “ setting the oven to convection and preheating to 350 °C & ldquo;.
On the one hand, Google can also let the oven understand all common voice commands. On the other hand, for Assistant to become more practical, manufacturers may need to go deeper.
LG is clearly an early actor. Before that, users need to call "talk to LG" before calling an operation. But now, you can give orders directly to LG's connected smart home appliances. After all, this is a faster, more natural interaction.
