Google Assistant provides more than just assistance with your phone and stuff. It actually helps you do tasks that are otherwise more time consuming. However, there are some moments when you need to use that assistance more personally. At this point, headphones come into play. They are connected to your phone and can be used with the Google Assistant without having to even look at your phone.
To give users that personal experience, Google has teamed up with Bose and launched a set of new headphones, the QC35 II. These headphones are optimized so that they can be used with the Assistant. With these headphones, you can keep yourself updated about the messages you receive and you can also use them for music in your free time. The functions offered by the headphones along with the Google Assistant are countless, provided that you keep them connected with your Android device or iPhone.
How to use them?
In order to use the headphones with the Assistant, connect your QC35 II headphones to your device through Bluetooth and open the Google Assistant. You will be directed towards the one-time setup. After that, you can use the Assistant whenever you want by just long pressing the action button on the headphones.
The headphones can give you alerts from calendar events, read out your incoming messages, and carry out other tasks on the go. Even if you’re listening to some music, the Assistant will read out your received text message for you.
Apart from listening to music, you can even listen to the news while you are walking in the park or going somewhere else. To access the news, ask the Assistant to read out the news and the hottest and trending topics will be read-out by the Assistant. News sources include channels like, CNBC, CNN, NPR, and others.
In addition, you can also ask the Assistant to place calls. For example, if you want to call your friend Josh, just ask the Assistant to, “Call Josh” and the Assistant will do it for you. In this way, you don’t need to take out your phone every time you need to talk to someone, just tell your Assistant what to do.
The new headphones are designed to help users get a smooth experience regardless of the place they are in. Whether it is a crowded bus or a crowded street, the headphones are embedded with active noise cancellation which makes the experience even more streamlined. Initially, the Google Assistant will be available on the new QC35 II in the US, UK, Germany, Canada, France, and Australia.
