Klipsch launches 'The Three | Google Assistant' smart speaker

Klipsch launches 'The Three | Google Assistant' smart speaker

The new addition works only with Google Play Music subscription, and you need to say something like, "Hey Google, play "Jingle Bell Rock" on Google Play Music".

Celebrating the Christmas season, the Google Assistant has received an update to the Call Santa feature.

Alongside that, Google's rolled out a couple of other features.

The biggest issue is that it keeps this list within the Home app on Android and iOS-not any one of the dozens of note-taking apps out there. You can also let the entire home know breakfast is ready, as just a few examples.

Google Assistant will identify your kindness and will reciprocate it. And these include Dora the Explorer's The Little Christmas Tree, and PAW Patrol's Holiday Helpers, as well as many more.

"Hey Google, please set a timer for 5 minutes".

The idea behind "Pretty Please" is to reinforce polite behaviours for children and adults as well.


Google's on a roll with the updates as we head into the holiday season, the latest of which introduces the Pretty Please feature to Assistant, first announced at I/O earlier this year. This is a feature that Google actually debuted back at Google I/O over the summer, and it is finally rolling out. This is especially aimed at children who are now encouraged to say "please" and "thank you" when talking to the Assistant. This is a feature that parents can toggle on and off at will, as well.

And in case Google AI ends up taking over the world like something out of a sci-fi movie, you'll have banked some good faith that may save you from Martian slave pits and re-education camps.

The small speaker is equipped for enjoying music via Bluetooth and WiFi, as well as supporting asking Google to stream certain music and ask it information regarding the news, weather, traffic and more.

They say life imitates art - and in this case, "art" is Smart House, the 1999 Disney Channel original movie about a family whose life is controlled by PAT, their home's artificially intelligent personal assistant.

Photo Sharing: Photos can now be shared from a smart display to people in your contact list.

Lastly, Assistant is getting some fun new feature for families. Simply ask the Assistant to play a song of your choice, and watch as synchronized lyrics appear on screen when the music begins. It now comes with a musical touch that you can experience by saying "Hey Google, Call Santa".
