The storytime home assistant feature on Google Home is done in collaboration with Disney. The device is now compatible with several Little Golden Books and can appropriately accent fairytale stories as adults read them to little ones. The tech interventions include relevant sound effects and ambiance-driven music. To activate the home assistant feature, one must simply give the command “Hey Google, let’s read along with Disney.” One of the more popular story sound effects that are made available through the Google x Disney collaboration is 'Moana and Coco.'
This is yet another example of how tech is being inserted and adapted to some of the most intimate moments of family life. The sound-emitting home assistant feature will surely increase the entertainment value of storytime and delight little ones.
