Google had promised the ability to control its cloud gaming platform Stadia using the Assistant on more platforms. This has started to come to fruition with the ability to tell this AI to launch titles via the service. It reportedly works through text or voice on Android or Chrome OS devices.

Historically, mentioning a game to Google's Assistant was most likely to meet with relevant search results and not much more. Now, however, it is gaining the ability to produce the actual title in question. This is thanks to Stadia, the Mountain View giant's cloud service.

Some Assistant users who also have this app on their Chromebook or Android device have noticed that the former can initialize the latter in response to commands that involve playing titles, so long as they are already owned by the account in question.

This level of cross-app integration has been exclusive to the Chromecast Ultra since Stadia's inception. Now, however, it is rolling out to many more devices on different platforms. Furthermore, Google has been said to have plans to take these new voice-assistant functions further. For example, it intends to allow the user to summon YouTube walkthroughs during gameplay as and when the user wishes.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
