Google has been beavering away on Google Assistant for a good couple of years now, adding in new features, improving its AI, and bundling it inside more devices and form factors.

Fresh off the back of the launch of the Google Pixel 3, Google has now confirmed a bunch of new Google Assistant features that Android users will be able to tap into during 2018.

New Google Assistant Features

Here’s the full list direct from Google of new Google Assistant features for Google’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 2 phones in 2018:







Google Home Too?

Yes, most of these (at least the non-phone ones) will also be coming to Google Home devices.

And Then There’s “Digital Wellbeing”

OK, so what the heck is Digital Wellbeing? In true Google fashion, it’s an initiative about using your Google products in a more healthy manner, whatever that means!

With Digital Wellbeing, you can do things like limit you time in Chrome to 30 minutes or fence of content on YouTube from kids. Family Link lets parents schedule and limit their children’s access to content and media.

Essentially, this is Google’s way of telling you you’re spending too much time on the web, looking at things like YouTube.

Why? Because Google REALLY does care about your wellbeing.
