The upcoming Home Hub is Google's first in-house attempt, although Google Assistant-equipped displays made by LG, Lenovo and Harman are already on the market, while rival Amazon is already onto the second generation of its Alexa Show competitor.

Broadcast Replies: Two-way communication between a smart display and smart phone/speaker.

Alternatively, if you have a Play Music subscription and an Assistant-powered smart display, you can see synchronized lyrics appear on-screen.

Did you know that the Google Assistant is your direct line to the North Pole?

Tyson Fury goes full Undertaker following THAT hook from Deontay Wilder
On the undercard, Jarrett Hurd defended his WBA and IBF 154-pound belts with a fourth-round stoppage of Jason Welborn. Welborn managed to get on the inside of Hurd, rocking him throughout the first three rounds of the bout.

The feature is enabled for all voice matched users on Smart Speakers and Smart Displays starting today. To get started, just say, "Hey Google, let's read along with Mickey's Christmas Carol". This is because Google wants you to do everything with the Google Assistant, and this includes things that you would normally do every single day.

Alongside that, Google's rolled out a couple of other features. This new development is created to let users easily communicate with multiple Google Assistant devices simultaneously and broadcast their message without having many efforts. We now offer over 50 titles, including "Beauty and the Beast", "Cinderella" and Dora the Explorer's "Dora's Super Sleepover". It will only work on the Assistant for now, but Google said it will soon add support for list providers, including Keep, Any.do and Bring! And it is also rolling out a new feature that can broadcast messages. Recent Google app teardowns revealed the company was working on adding this feature. Starting next week, Google will also add the ability for those at home to reply using their own voice. Say "Hey, Google, tell me a story". When someone hits you up on the ol' doorbell, just tap the "Talk" button on your smart display to find out exactly what they want. You can use it to create a grocery list, a gift list, a to-do list - all the lists! You can also quickly hide a photo from your ambient screen or favorite a photo to be enjoyed again at a later time.

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.
