New Update To Bring Visual Smart Home Controls In Google Assistant

Google Assistant is a smart artificial intelligence assistant that can help you to control smart home devices, even if you don’t have Google Home or the smart speakers. But sometimes voice commands for tasks like unlocking doors, switching off lights or turning on TV can be tricky for the Google Assistant as well. More complex commands like increasing or decreasing the volume of the TV may end up as something else, as the smart tech may interpret the voice commands according to its own binary commands.

So, to go past something of this sort, an update is expected to carry Google Smart Display that will put up physical controls on the device’s touchscreen instead, which will further help the user to manage it better. The smart display will be much like that you might have seen on the Lenovo Smart Display. Google is getting ready to roll out this update for its voice-controlled assistant soon.

In a recent update, some Google Assistant users had reported to Droid Life about the new interface that has been added with physical controls on the screen when they voiced to adjust smart home devices through their smartphones.

As of now, Google may be testing the new update with a set of few users to take their feedback on the new addition. After refining the update, the Google Smart Display will soon be extended to other smart devices.

In the screenshot attached here, you can clearly spot the controller for room temperature and light brightness, after one of the users asked Google Assistant to interact with these appliances.

By arming the users’ with the smart controls, Google will be offering more freedom to adjust the said commands according to the user requirement.

Only the time will tell, how the smart speakers evolve with the advancement in technology. To my concern, putting a smart display for the voice commands will only improve the user experience and offer better controls.
