Google Assistant can now read your calendar

The announcements came at Google's annual Cloud Next conference in San Francisco.

In more news related to Google, has just announced that one can now use an Android smartphone as a physical security key, offering you a more convenient way to log into Google apps with the security of two-factor authentication.

Voice assistants are moving into the office, prompting Google to integrate its Google Assistant technology with G Suite customer calendars.

Companies who have enrolled themselevs with G Suite can request for the Beta edition of Currents starting from today itself.

New add-ons from companies like Box and Workfront that let G Suite users toggle between those third-party business apps from within G Suite, another example of why integration is so important to modern business software. That's where Hangouts Chat and Meet came from. The livestreaming function looks to be especially useful for organizations that want to broadcast events they're hosting, since it can support up to 100,000 viewers at a time. Connected Sheets is also being released in beta. Workers can also consult a CRM tool for information when working on Google Docs, add tasks into a project management tool directly from an email, and more. It has Google's AI built-in, helping transcribe voicemails and block spam, as well as a text-to-speech functionality to automatically create call menus. Users will be able to work on Office files in G Suite without having to convert file types. That Google Currents has long gone (it became Google Newsstand and then plain old Google News) but the name lives on as a means to build closed social networks for your organisation. The end of this service started when Google introduced Google+ integration with Gmail, YouTube, Hangouts and all of the Google services.

We use G Suite at Ausdroid quite extensively, so we'll be looking forward to this feature working pretty soon.
