has announced that it is adding
and default features to all Google Assistant-compatible devices. “As part of that continued effort to support an open ecosystem and bring
features to everyone globally, we’re rolling out some important updates this week to your devices”, the company said in a blog post.
The company claims that with Voice Match you can teach Google Assistant to recognize your voice so you can receive personalized results, including calendar reminders or traffic to work, even if you share the device with other people in the household.
