Unlike, the earlier versions where the user need to say ‘Hey Google’, is not required in this latest version. At the beginning of the conversation, the user can just start saying ‘Hey Google’, then the remaining conversation can be made normally without the need to again call, ‘Hey Google’. For Instance,
User: ‘Hey Google’, how is the weather today
Google: Its going to be cloudy
User: will it rain today
User: How about tomorrow
Google: Tomorrow is also expected to be cloudy with little chances of raining at some places
User: Okay, so remind me tomorrow to take care of my pets
Though, the continued conversation of Google assistance seems to be amazing, but the only drawback with it is its incapability to receive complex commands.

Google Duplex uses natural language understanding, text to speech and for making an outcome of Alphabet’s various investments over a long period of time. This assistance can understand the essence of the conversation. This feature is really very useful to the user as most of the businesses in US, say for about 60% of small scale business do not offer online booking of appointment. In such case, a person need to call to the particular firm and fix an appointment, which is now made easy with the help of Google duplex.

4) Can Performs multiple task at same time
The humanistic feature of this Google assistance can be seen at extracting multiples task from a single command. In other words, thought the user gives multiple task for the Google assistance in a single command, the Google assistance is able to understand the complex command and breakdown into the individual commands, and performs as desired by the user.
User: ‘Hey Google’ lower the AC temperature to 18OC and turn on YouTube
Google Assistance: Sure, AC temperature has been lowered to 18OC and YouTube is turned on.
This is a complex task because, the Google assistance need to understand where to cut the command and which to take. If the Google assistance do not understand it properly, then it would not be possible to deliver such a perfection in delivering the task.
5) Integrating Multiple Tasks and continued conversation
Earlier, Google assistance can be applied for a coffee maker machine, now, this feature is boosted with the integration of multiple task and continued conversation. Where in, in the earlier versions, the user need to make step wise commands for getting his cup of coffee from the coffee machine using Google assistance, whereas now, using the integration of multiple task and continued conversation, the user can perform multiple task in a single step.
