Google Assistant gets personalized audio news briefings

Google Assistant is Getting AI-Powered Audio News AI will soon decide what you hear in Google Assistant news briefings

But obviously news sources matter, and Google has teamed up with several worldwide publications including The Hollywood Reporter, South China Morning Post, The Associated Press, and many others. "Turn on the radio and you're dropped into a show at the moment in time-regardless of what you already know, where you are, or what you're interested in", Google's Liz Gannes writes, " Imagine instead if you could have your own radio, one that's available on-demand, accessible throughout your day, and brings you news about the world and your interests".

Listening to the news over a Google Home smart speaker is going to get more useful. Google is looking to change how media is consumed with Assistant by adding a new audio news feature.

However, there were some caveats to this - aside from your chosen station's political leaning, you couldn't really choose the exact kind of news you wanted to ingest on a daily basis, and you were also at the mercy of the station's schedule and ads.

Last season, the outfielder hit.296 with 47 RBI and 10 home runs in 51 games with the Sooners. They are both finalists for the Heisman, along with Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins .

The new audio news experience creates an on-the-fly playlist for you consisting of top stories and updates you care about, and then longer-form, deep-dive content.

Audio news on Google Assistant will roll out first to a limited number of people in the U.S. in English. Google's guidelines also recommend that media publishers keep their short-format stories around 50 seconds long.

Google wants to make sure that Assistant is your go-to source for just about everything it possibly can be, and news delivery certainly falls in that purview. For now, a story is expected to be less than two minutes for short-format entries and between two and 15 minutes for medium-format listings. And if you don't like what's playing, you can always ask the Assistant to jump to the next story. For now, it's only available in English.
