Google now lets hardware developers tinker with its Assistant

All you need to do is pick a recipe and turn on your Google Assistant on your Android device or Google search and locate a recipe. The company says the toolkit is ideal for your own hardware prototype "like a self-built robot or a voice-enabled smart mirror", so obviously the technology isn't ready yet to go commercial.

Beginning today, Google Home doesn't just have entry to five million new recipes, it additionally enables you to effectively venture through them and make inquiries about them for extra information if you have some doubts on the way you cook.

Besides, Google also wants companies that are interested in developing a commercial product to get in touch with it.

Prominent firm to defend 'Bachelor' star in Iowa crash case
Authorities said someone called 911 to report the crash, but they didn't release the identity of the caller or audio of the call. He was taken after the crash by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, where he was pronounced dead.

If you need a little inspiration for what to create with the Google Assistant SDK, just check out Deeplocal's mocktails mixer. That will save the recipe to your Google Home. Once the user is ready to cook, they will have to use the command "Ok Google, start cooking" or "Ok Google, start recipe".

But what if you could listen to a recipe and your favorite music, all at the same time? Essentially any dish you can think of, Google Assistant and Google Home can now walk you through the cooking process step by step. Using the speaker after the recipe is not a hard thing to do. It gives instructions one by one at a time and gives you the option to repeat a step, thereby making the cooking process more interactive, as per The Verge.

Google says the feature will be rolling out across Google Assistant over the next week. Using Google's gRPC API, developers can also integrate the Assistant into other hardware platforms and use languages like Jave, C#, Node.js and Ruby.
