Google has announced that it will be holding a "Hey Google" Smart Home Virtual Summit next week to share new and upcoming features for smart home developers and users. Since the Google I/O had to be canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the summit will provide an opportunity to the company to be able to engage with developers and users "in person."
Michele Turner, Product Management Director of the Smart Home Ecosystem, will be sharing Google's recent smart home product initiatives in the keynote, which is set to begin at 13:00 ET on July 8. Turner will also share new tools that have been designed to make it easier to develop with Google Assistant.
Google will host a "Hey Google" partner panel as well, where several industry leaders will talk about the impact of COVID-19 on their business and the overall state of the Smart Home industry.
As announced by Google earlier this month, Smart Displays will soon be able to access AMP web content. More web content categories are expected to be enabled for Google Assistant Smart Displays later this year. The Assistant has also gained the ability to save session information for multiple users on a single device, which means users can resume playback of podcasts and videos across compatible devices.
