Sony Headphones Finally Get Google Assistant Support

Sony Headphones Finally Get Google Assistant Support

Google Assistant might have had humble beginnings, but the digital assistant has expanded to so many different devices these days that it is quickly becoming a ubiquitous resource.

Google has built the Assistant Pixel Buds and we've seen Assistant-equipped devices from Bose and Sony in the past.

Owners of other Sony headphones should expect the same exact support in a future update but right now there's no mention from Sony about when the update will start hitting devices.

Android Police reported on Thursday that Sony is bringing Assistant support to the WH-1000XM2 and WI-1000X models.

Google surprised everyone with its massive presence at CES 2018 early this year, and that came with a huge focus on Google Assistant.

This is the third straight year that the Jaguars have participated in joint practices during training camp. Jacksonville hosted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for joint practices during the past two training camps.

The Assistant should also be arriving on the WF-1000X, WH-CH900N and the H.ear on 2 WH-H900N, but it's unclear when their respective updates will arrive.

Sony is making it easier for some users to use Google Assistant by rolling out a firmware update to some of their headphones which enables Google Assistant. Users can even have push notifications spoken to them.

Once the update is installed, users have the option to switch the Noise Cancel/Ambient Sound Control button to instead trigger the Google Assistant.

With this integration, you get more than just access to Assistant commands.
