Your current location can be tracked with a simple voice command to your Google Nest
GOOGLE ASSISTANT-enabled smart displays will soon be able to display digital Post-It Notes, messages for family members, and even track down a parent or children using data from Google Maps.
If you have a number of Google Assistant-enabled smart home kit, including the likes of Samsung Smart TVs, Nest Mini, Nest Hub, and others in your family home, then the latest feature from Google could prove incredibly helpful. That’s because Google is allowing younger members of the family to ask the Google Assistant to find your current whereabouts.
It also offers a Driver Report, which lets family members “see how (and what) your drivers are doing behind the wheel to encourage safe habits”. But it’s the location-based functionality, including the ability to “get notified as loved ones come and go from your most frequented spots” that now ties into the Google Home-compatible smart home kit. It will also be available on Android and iOS devices, so you’ll be able to summon the Google Assistant on your personal smartphone to find out where your nearest and dearest are at any one time.
