Google did a pretty impressive job today with a very specific set of answers.

“OK Google, who wrote the play Dybbuk?”

Boom… solid answer.

“OK Google, what language was it original written in?”

Bam… great context awareness.

“OK Google, what year was it written in?”

Yup… got it again.

Very rarely do I have three questions in a row about a topic, but Google nailed it. Oh, and a few other things..

  • It picked it up on Android at 1 m away in a care driving while Google Maps was running.
  • It pronounced the name of the play perfectly.
  • The trigger worked well despite the delay in endpoint detection chime.

There were a lot of things that could go wrong Google impressed in this scenario.
