Play the Games

One of my favorite things to do is play games. Seriously, I built an entire table from scratch for nothing other then to play and store my many games.

I also know new parents and veteran parents who are looking for more fun to have with their young children.

So when Google Announced that the Assistant, Home and Mini would be able to play games…I had to investigate.

Google breaks it down into these categories:

One of the coolest thing about this feature is you can make a Family Link account and give your children their own personalized experience.

They can then use their own Google Account to talk to and have the Google Assistant Listen to them.

I write this today in the hopes that you use it with your children and any child you may know. Me…I’ve already made Evie her own account and hopefully around Christmas her present will come in form Unca Trev. She might not be able to use it quite yet, but my sister will teach her.

Google On!
