Also, if you have a phone or tablet running Lollipop or older, don't think that this means you'll magically be able to get Google Assistant on your device.

Following the Google hardware event in San Francisco on Wednesday, the Mountain View giant has brought Google Assistant to the Google Play store.

The Google Assistant capability follows other initiatives by the company, including an online gift concierge called GWYN (gifts when you need) that's powered by IBM's Watson artificial intelligence.

Google Home will now be able to recognize users by voice
If they don't see the male voice option, they should make sure they have updated the Google and Home applications. For now, Google Chrome OS is compatible with Android apps and is already available on the Pixel phones.

Unfortunately, the app doesn't perform any function for those who don't have the Google Assistant installed in their Smartphone already.

The newest Google Play Store version might not be a big update but it comes with a couple of features under the hood, including the Cookbooks, FAB button and Quick install button. Although it was made available on Android a year ago, the company added it as an app on Google Play on October 4. You can still access your Assistant by pressing and holding down your home button or by simply saying, "Ok Google". The publication notes that the creation of a standalone app may also help users include it as part of an automation tool like IFTTT or Tasker.

Though now it will not work on Chromebooks but maybe Google has launched this app for adding Google assistant support on Chromebooks later.

At least 13 killed in Balochistan shrine blast
It is unclear who carried out the attack, but Sufi shrines have been increasingly targeted by Islamist extremists in recent years. Initial probe showed that the blast occurred when dhamal was going in the premises of the shrine.

In effect, this allows the Google Assistant to distinguish between different voices, thereby allowing products such as Google Home to recognise different members of the family and tailor the responses and tasks according to each person and the associated Google account. This information could be revealed from the code of the app and Google doesn't mention it anywhere. Since without this application, you will have to find a suitable replacement in order for you to add new applications to your device.

Crunchbase data profiles have also been included in the new version of the app to add additional context to the stories you read.
