Google’s newest feature works for Google Assistant-powered devices, mainly smart displays. It is a new feature made specifically for kids and families.
The new feature is called ‘Family Notes’ to be used in a Nest Hub Max along with other devices. Basically, the feature is a virtual sticky note. Users can for example say, “Hey Google, leave a family note that says defrost the pie,” or “Hey Google, leave a family note that says we’re out of Christmas cookies.”
Family Bell also comes with new sound effects and family bells can be made using the Assistant settings and by saying, “Hey Google, create a Family Bell.” These bells can also be paused for a single day.
Another new feature is the learning activity, where users and their families will be able to learn new facts, perform different challenges and read and make up personalized stories.
The feature to find out where your family member is located is accessible on Google Assistant for Android and iOS too.
