Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Google has launched a new way to use Assistant to get the romance started. Google has also published a list of ways to use Assistant to ensure this Valentine’s Day works out just the way you (or your partner) planned it.
Hey Google, Turn Up the Love
In a post on The Keyword, Google spells out the many and varied ways Assistant can help your Valentine’s Day go well. The post was written by someone called Olive U. Somuch, which is clearly a real person and not just a made-up name in honor of Valentine’s.
The headline feature use Google Assistant to “transform your home from forgettable to festive”. All you need to say is “Hey Google, turn up the love”. Doing so will make the Assistant play smooth jazz music and turn your color-changing lights to red and purple.
