The quality of cognition has also been improved for the Google Assistant, with some 15-odd million voice samples being used to train it.

At its big event Wednesday, Google launched a ton of new hardware: Two phones, a laptop, two new smart speakers, and wireless headphones. One of the major breakthroughs of this endeavour is the innovative voice match feature that allows the Assistant to build a DNA of sorts of individual voices based on the pitch, tonality, diction, and other voice signatures.

Unfortunately, the app doesn't perform any function for those who don't have the Google Assistant installed in their Smartphone already.

What's more, you'll also be able to send a song to another Chromecast-enabled speaker by saying out loud something like: "Ok Google, play Today's Top Hits on my Chromecast".

Android Police adds that the app's code also reveals that it checks if the user's device is eligible for Assistant, and informs the user if it is not.

In addition, last month, Google announced that similar to Android Wear 2.0, Version 1.0 will also have standalone apps. As in the changelog Google notes, this is its first release of Google Assistant and so likely it will continue for updating the app.
