Google makes it easier for Assistant to come to any device


Google Assistant can help with a lot of things, but since Google’s digital helper is limited to only certain types of devices right now, how helpful is it, really?

Well, the answer to that question is about to change as Google just released the developer preview of the Google Assistant SDK. 

While this doesn’t mean much to consumers on the face of it, it does mean developers can implement Google Assistant in any device they create. This will likely lead to an influx of gadgets that have the Assistant’s smarts built in, including ones you can one day buy.

“With this SDK you can now start building your own hardware prototypes that include the Google Assistant, like a self-built robot or a voice-enabled smart mirror,” Google said in a blog post. “This allows you to interact with the Google Assistant from any platform.”
