Google Assistant Continued Conversations finally coming to smart displays

I actually hadn't realized it wasn't available on Smart Displays, but that's great news!

Take a quick trip into the Home app settings, and you'll probably see smart displays available under the Continued Conversation menu. This effectively reduces the number of times users have to say, "OK Google" or "Hey Google", and in the context of a normal conversation, it makes sense since it seems unnatural to keep repeating wake words over and over. Similar to smart speakers, this is an optional feature that users can opt in and out of.

If you have a problem with your Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL phone, and live in the USA, you can now mail it in to Google for repairs. The Assistant also automatically emails you about the reservation and adds it to your calendar. Let us know in the comments.

In the years since the original Google Home was released, the smart speaker platform has received several new features.
