Google Assistant wants to help you with behavior.
On Thursday, the company announced the release of its "Pretty Please" feature for Google Assistant, which helps encourage courteous manners when interacting with its smart home computers. The feature was first announced on Google's I / O developer conference in May, and it rolls out on time for the vacation.
The "Pretty Please" feature works when users speak with their Google Assistant, including words like "thank you" or "thank you" in their requests. Like, "Hi Google, please set a timer for 5 minutes." With "Pretty Please," a Google Assistant can respond to that request by saying "Thank you so much." Ok, 5 minutes. From now on. "
The idea behind" Pretty Please "is to enhance polite behavior for both children and adults. The feature is now live on Google's smart speakers and for all those who have registered their Google Assistant app.
In April announced Amazon, a similar feature called "Magic Word" for its clever assistant Alexa to reward and enhance polite behavior among users, especially children.
