You can start making reservations with your Assistant-enabled Smart Displays “soon” – So says Google. Based on an article from: Ben Schoon at 9to5Google, you will be able to tell your smart display, like the Nest Hub 2nd Gen things like “Hey Google, Book at a table for 4 at [your favorite restaurant].” What will happen? You might see a little pop-up showing you something about the restaurant (like hours of operation, phone number, etc.).

Google has not announced a release date for Duplex’s arrival to Assistant-enabled smart displays, but you can get excited to have your office or kitchen smart display ready to book a table, the next time you burn your dinner.

Google announces Duplex coming to Smart Displays very “soon”: 

In other news, Google is also rolling out Stadia to the Chromecast with Google TV. You’ll be able to play Stadia games on the Chromecast and then jump to your favorite movie or TV show and vice-versa.

I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to turn my night-table Nest Hub 2nd Gen and Lenovo Smart Display into little gaming units, but having it on the Chromecast with Google TV makes is already intuitive.
