Google has announced Assistant, its new way to be there for users and assist in getting things done in the real world. The Assistant is an ongoing two-way conversation that understands your context, gives you control and more. Around 20% of Google's search queries come from voice on mobile devices, and this will help bring better information to those results. Google Assistant will extend beyond just phones: it will be on wearables, in your cars, on your computer, and in your home.
Once you ask a question, like "Where is the Taj Mahal?", and then ask "how old is it?", Google will know the context of your question to be able to provide an answer. Additionally, if you are searching for movie tickets, you can ask "what's playing tonight?" and Google Assistant will help automate the buying process. Be sure to stay tuned for additional information as it is made available from Google.
