This February Google finally brought the Google Assistant from the Pixel and Google Home to other Android devices, but they were newer products such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 and HTC 10. Older phone owners were stuck with upgrading or going Assistant-less. That changes now. The company announced on Wednesday that Google Assistant is now coming to some older devices.

Smart devices are becoming more and more ubiquitous. Whether you're the owner of a smart lightbulb, smart outlet, security camera, or all of the above, managing your devices can get tricky, especially if you're amassing a collection.

If you're using a Google voice assistant, though, they're making it easy to add new smart toys to your existing home setup: one simple command that can get your voice assistant up to speed and keep your connected devices aware of one another. All you have to do is say: "Hey Google, sync my devices."

Your Google Pixel 2 has a pretty capable built-in butler in the form of Google Assistant. Not everyone with an Android phone, however, is all-in on Google's ecosystem. In fact, some users might be - wait for it - Microsoft users. And that means Cortana is their go-to virtual assistant. Thanks to Microsoft, you can ditch Google's voice assistant and swap it out with one that's more up your alley.

You know that thing you do where you ask your partner/friend/family member to remind you to do something later? Yeah, well now Google Home can actually do that, and unlike that person you always ask, it won't forget. Last month, Google Home rolled out an update that finally enabled voice-activated reminders for the digital assistant.

For six glorious months a few years ago C-3PO was the voice of Waze on my phone. That December I drove from California to North Carolina, and having my favourite droid give me directions made the whole experience a lot more pleasant. I love it when you can change the voice of digital assistants you deal with daily. Sure, it isn't adding any functionality, but it can be fun to change things up every now and then. And now you can change the voice of Google Assistant on your Android phone or Google Home setup.
