Hey Google!

 Hey Tek-ninjas! This is really cool. Today's Snap Core First update is a game changer. We've all seen or heard of folks talking to their home speakers, asking questions, or giving commands. With Snap Core First, users can do so any where in their home because this interaction happens instantaneously over the network from the AAC device to Google Assistant, and is not dependent on the microphone. This is especially important if say you are jamming Pavarotti, Tyler Childers, or Sound Garden and you worry that the Google Assistant might not hear your next command as the volume would have to compete with the music. 

In case you are wondering let me lay it out for you....Google Assistant will allow you to:

Control your devices and your smart home
Access information from your calendars and other personal information
Find information online, from restaurant bookings to directions, weather and news
Control your music
Play content on your Chromecast or other compatible devices
Run timers and reminders
Make appointments and send messages
Open apps on your phone
Read your notifications to you
Real-time spoken translations
Play games
