Google Assistant now supports "Continued Conversation" across all Google Home smart speakers
At Google I/O 2018, Google announced some pretty interesting features in Google Assistant. Google Assistant's Continued Conversation was one of the key features announced by Google CEO, Sundar Pichai.
To start a conversation with Google Assistant, you have to say "Hey Google" each time you give a command to Google Assistant which looks more like a Question Answer round. But with Continued Conversation rolling out for Google Home, Home Max, and Home Mini users, Google Assistant will be more naturally conversational. Google Assistant will now engage in continued back and forth conversations.
To start the conversation, you have to say "Hey Google" once followed by your command. It will remain awake or active for at most 8 seconds if you stop the conversation. After 8 seconds, you need to start a fresh conversation by again saying "Hey Google".
Enabling Continued Conversation requires logging into your Google Account. In the Google Assistant settings, go to Settings, navigate to Preferences and within Preferences, you will find Continued Conversation.
Just Tap on Continued Conversation and Enable it. After this, Continued Conversation will be available in all your Google Home speakers linked with this account.
Google has rolled out this feature in the US for all Google Home speaker users.
Some other features announced at Google I/0 2018 are Google Assistant placing your calls, engaging in polite conversations, scheduling your appointments to even placing online food orders for you.
