To brighten up your day as you browse through a sea of bad news, the Google Assistant is now compiling good news – stories about people solving real problems around the world.
"Tell me something good" is a new experimental feature, currently available to US assistant users.
Just say & # 39; Hey Google, tell me something good & # 39; To receive your daily dose of good news, Google said in a statement Tuesday.
"Real people make progress in solving real problems and hearing those stories is a crucial part of a balanced media diet," said Ryan Burke, Creative Producer, Creative Lab at Google.
The daily dose of good stories is compiled and summarized by the Solutions Journalism Network, a non-partisan non-profit organization.
"Solution journalism empowers the public and stimulates the public, helps prevent negative new fatigue We are now investigating how we can incorporate more solutions for journalism wherever you visit Google News," said the technology giant.
The feature works on any device with Google Assistant, including phone, Smart Display or Google Home smart speaker.
The Google Assistant can now connect to more than 5,000 devices at your home.
"That includes cameras, dishwashers, doorbells, dryers, lamps, plugs, thermostats, security systems, switches, vacuum cleaners, rings, fans, locks, sensors, heaters, AC units, air cleaners, refrigerators, ovens, we can continue !
