If you’ve ever caught yourself saying ‘please’ or ‘thank you’ to your digital assistant, you’re finally going to get the recognition you deserve– at least if you’re using a Google Home product.
For example, if you say, “Hey Google, please set a timer for 10 minutes,” Google Assistant will now respond with “Thanks for asking so nicely! 10 minutes, starting now.”
You don’t have to be polite, though, the assistant will still work for you if you’re curt.
Google first told the world about the feature, which they call “Pretty Please,” back in May. Amazon rolled out an almost identical feature for its Alexa back in April of this year.
