via IFTTT Google Home New Updates and New Features for October 21, 2018 – Lenovo Smart Display 10″ Giveaway

As always, there are new Google Home updates and new Google Home Mini features here in 2018. This latest set of updates spans the new Google Home Hub, the Google Home, the Google Home Mini, and of course, everybody’s favorite…the Google Assistant.

Obviously, the big news this week is the dropping of the Google Home Hub, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones, a new Google Chromecast, and all of their new features. Included in that is the rollout of Google Duplex, beginning city by city in the USA. – Real-time translation rolls out to more Google Assistant-enabled headphones

Real-time translation with any Google-Assistant enabled earbuds or headphones? Yes please! – Google Assistant is getting a big update this month

Updates to the Lenovo Smart Display, JBL Link View, and other Google Assistant-enabled devices will allow them to be a part of Multi-Room Audio setups. That’s major news for owners of those (including me). On top of that, Android phone users will be able to access Google Assistant from the lock screen (if they want). – Google Assistant can now play Netflix on Android TV devices

Yep, and it’s about time. – Google Home will let you adjust podcast playback speed

I love podcasts, but I don’t always want to go at regular speed. “Hey Google, play at 2x speed.” – Google Assistant makes it easier to go clothes shopping on Asos

If you’re in the US or UK, this is an interesting shopping experience, especially with a Smart Display. – Spooky Google Assistant easter eggs are going live in time for Halloween

Halloween questions and commands:

– Are you celebrating Halloween?
– Boo!
– Do you know any scary stories?
– Happy Halloween
– It’s almost Halloween
– Scare me
– Trick or treat?
– What are you going to be for Halloween?
– What should I wear for Halloween?
– I want to hear something spooky / give me a Halloween sound
– Tell me a Halloween joke
– Tell me a Halloween fact

There will also be some standard questions with specialized responses closer to Halloween:

– How are you?
– Hey
– What’s your name?
– What do you look like?
– What’s up?

That’s all that we have for the #GoogleHome #Updates and new #Features for this week in 2018!
