Google Assistant sounds like it could be just what smart home fans have been looking for

It lets you take advantage of Chromecast—shooting a show you might ask about directly to your TV or streaming a song to your Chromecast-enabled speakers.

Google Assistant sounds like it could be just what smart home fans have been looking for in a digital assistant, but it’s pretty near worthless if it doesn’t have some good hardware to go along with it. That’s where the Google Home (previously codenamed Chirp) comes in.

Google Home can answer questions typically difficult for other assistants to answer

Such as asking for an athlete's jersey number and following it up with something like, "Where did they go to college?"

Alexa, Google’s aiming to steal your throne.

Hey Google, has my package shipped?

Google Home will answer that question for you.

Home will integrate with what Google does best: Internet search. While you can ask it to give you simple information like movie times, it will also be able to search your photos, emails, and more to tell you when a package will arrive or if your flight is delayed.

Google wants it to be the first place you go to do a wide variety of home tasks and entertainment experiences.

It's focused on entertainment, tasks, and of course you can ask it to look up pretty much anything.

Google Home is a small speaker you plug into the wall, with a series of far-field microphones tuned to hear you from across the room.

Well, the rumors were true. At its IO developer conference in California today, Google announced Home, the company's own take on the Amazon Echo. Much like

Basis now links its fitness data with Google Fit

The +Basis Peak app is able to share your calories, heart rate, sleep, steps and walk, run, and bike activities with Google Fit. Google Fit is able to share your weight with the Peak app.

By allowing users to export their fitness data to Google Fit (and in turn, other third-party services compatible with it), Basis is turning its closed system into a more open platform

Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mybasis.android.basis.peak

Google has the full weight of the natural language processing behind it

Google Home will let users ask a broader range of questions than the Echo can manage, since Google assistant connects to the company's
powerful search platform.

Users will be able to use the Google Home to control their Nest devices or play music in different rooms using speakers enabled with Chromecast Audio

Google's advantage in this fight also could be its large portfolio of popular apps, including +Google Maps, +Google Photos and Google Calendar, as well as +Nest's smart-home devices. Also, Google's digital assistant, known as Google Now, already resides in Android smartphones and the Google search app. Having a device that can bring all those items together in an easy-to-use, voice-controlled speaker could give the Echo a run for its money.

Google wants to knock Amazon's Echo off its perch at the center of the smart home, and it will use a device called Home to do it.

You can think of Home as what you'd expect if you were looking for Google to create an Echo competitor

Google Home will answer your questions, play your music, and control some of your home automation gadgets including +Nest 

#googlehome   #googleassistant   #smarthome   #connectedhome  
For the past year and a half, the tech world has been recovering from Amazon's surprise announcement of the Echo. Now, Google is finally doing what everybody wanted it to do: release a competitor....

Every Story starts with Mom

The best gift for Mom is to tell her how you feel.

Dozens of people from all walks of life share stories about their moms, in time for Mother’s Day. The result?

A surprising, compelling, and emotionally vulnerable story about the transformative impact of moms.

The best gift for mom this Mother’s Day isn’t flowers or a pedicure or chocolates. Just tell her what’s in your heart. Life is unpredictable and these things shouldn’t go unsaid. As one daughter put it, “Mom, you did good.”

For someone, who is fascinated by superheroes, here's what I would say: You're my Hero.

Happy Mother's Day, Moms! Those who have helped us grow as people. Who with love and imagination battled monsters living under our bed. Who showed us the wonder of the world and encouraged us to find our unique place in it. Who celebrated the weird in each of us and who challenged us to take chances, but err on the side of kindness. Who whether in memory or in each moment, continue helping us grow each day.Thank you for all the patience, wisdom and teaching us what is most important in life.

What will you say to your Mom/guardian this Mother’s Day?

Google Fit can break barriers between applications!+Giampaolo Frello

#googlefit   #fitnessapps   #lifesum   #runtastic  
 
The right way to use Google Fit (IMO).

I finally found an application that really uses Google Fit. 
As you can see I run a session with +Runtastic  that unfortunately doesn't sync directly with +Lifesum. However it syncs with GoogleFit. 
However also Lifesum syncs with GoogleFit however not only as a container to drop data in but even to collect. Hence Lifesum detects there is a physical activity in it and import it! Excellent.

Now I'm eagerly waiting an update by +Runtastic for its excellent Runtastic Me (and Orbit) to support GoogleFit so I can import to Lifesum my daily steps and calories burned. And of course also an Android version of Runtastic Libra to sync my weight.

The way I see GoogleFit can break barriers between applications!
