Continued Conversation is a new feature that means you won t have to repeatedly say Hey Google to get the Assistant s attention.

We must admit the conversation did sound relatively natural, and it will be interesting to see how it works in real life.

One of the ways the Assistant is able to handle threaded requests is because of what Google calls Multiple Actions . In other words, Assistant will be able to combine multiple requests in a phrase.
Sticking to making Google Assistant more human, the AI assistant will now be getting a new “Pretty Please” mode. Essentially, when you say please while talking to Assistant, it will respond politely. It is a really good feature to ensure kids learn the importance of talking politely with others.
Google has revealed that Assistant currently is available on over 500 million devices, and works with over 5,000 home devices. Soon, it’ll work in over 30 languages as well.
