Google Assistant can now open your personal Netflix profile with your voice

Google Assistant can now open your personal Netflix profile with your voice”

The Play Store will offer audiobooks at "affordable" prices without making you sign up for an ongoing plan.

Rolling out this week in 45 countries and nine languages, you can turn your time stuck in traffic, on the treadmill, or waiting in line into reading time.

If you're like me and have thrown Google Home into the equation, everything is even more complicated as shouting "OK Google, play Stranger Things on Netflix" has previously only served playback from a single Netflix profile. And since Google Assistant also connects your streaming services for casting content, it's more important that it recognizes the correct voice with the correct account.

Each person in your home will need to go through this same process to link their Google and Netflix accounts together, but it thankfully just takes a few seconds and will ensure that you aren't getting recommendations for new shows to watch based on what your kids, spouse, or roommate is watching.

Google launching an audiobooks store widens the battle, which has also seen Google's YouTube unit stop supporting an Amazon product. "It will be coming soon to the Assistant on Android Auto in the U.S".

Hence, Google has gotten into the audiobook business.

According to numerous reports, Google recently put up a banner in the Google Play Store to indicate that "Audiobooks are now on Google Play".

On Tuesday, Google announced the availability of audiobooks on Google Play, allowing customers to purchase and stream books through the Google Home or Google Play Books on Android, iOS, and the web. And when it does, the company is offering an incentive to get users browsing and buying: half-off the first audiobooks they purchase. To reduce confusion, it's possible Google might just move all audiobooks to the Google Play Store. Google says it's "coming soon to the Assistant on Android Auto in the United States".
