Google Assistant SDK Developer Preview Goes Live

Google Home Now Offers Access To Over 5 Million Recipes

Google Home Now Offers Access To Over 5 Million Recipes

But one thing this little bot wasn't able to do was read your recipes-until today.

Alternatively, users can find these recipes through the Google Search app on iOS and Android. With this SDK you can now start building your own hardware prototypes that include the Google Assistant, like a self-built robot or a voice-enabled smart mirror. The SDK allows you to capture a spoken query, for example "what's on my calendar", pass that up to the Google Assistant service and receive an audio response.

The assistant will divide the recipe into a number of steps that users can also ask it to repeat or check back on by mentioning the relevant step number in their voice command. After this, all you have to do is to just follow the instruction that Google Home gives you.

Google Home now serves up numerous guided recipe instructions.

Google is now rolling out Google Assistant to a wider range of compatible Android phones and Android Wear. This is just the beginning stages, but it's a huge step forward in getting Google Assistant to reach more people and in helping to expand its capabilities.

US Corn Planting Catching Up
Iowa, Kansas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Tennessee, Minnesota and MI is below the four year average. Topsoil moisture in our area rated 0% very short, 1% short, 86% adequate, and 13% excess, according to the report.

Last week, we reported to you that Google Home is now capable of recognizing and responding to six different speakers. Set up is not necessary as all you need to do is send a recipe to your Google Home or start on the device and you are good to go!

The recipe reciting functionality is already present in the Amazon Echo speaker.

There is no need for cookbooks with this new feature as everything can be accessed through the Google Assistant.

Google Home has finally arrived in the United Kingdom, bringing a number of exciting new features to the connected home.
