Apple and Samsung have created quite a storm as far as their "assistants" are concerned and now Google has joined the party. The only difference is that the Google Assistant is not solely limited to mobile devices. With Android slowly creeping in and covering a wider niche, one thing that most would benefit from is discovering the creativity from within.

Developers have the best chance to make that happen once they get to see what the Google Assistant Software Development Kit (SDK) has to offer. Mostly linked to mobile devices, the SDK opens up plenty of possibilities that include building hardware prototypes or even home-based solutions like a voice-enabled smart mirror according to product manager Chris Ramsdale via Google blog post.

In a nutshell, the Google Assistant would not be necessarily limited to Android use. It may end up establishing an interactive solution, the apparent direction technology is headed to these days. It could cover stuff like TV sets or the seldom-noticed washer or dryer, accounting for a fully automated surrounding that will eventually pamper folks from needing to budge.

Pitching in to help the Google Assistant achieve such is the Assistant APK. It makes use of a Python open-source gRPC-API to mediate the authentication process to the API, samples, and documentation, IT World explains.

It is an ambitious move but something that makes tons of sense. The Google Assistant can change lives with the interactive technology and probably more possibilities with the right developers anchoring it all. Some may find it spooky but how else can one term "Alexa," "Bixby" or "Siri" when one asks them to do something on a mobile device?

The Google Assistant has merely expanded the niche, veering away from the redundant voice-based assistance. It was bound to go there at some point and Google simply took a step only a few vendors have taken. Read More
