For iPhones, after you activate receiving important notifications and alerts from the Google Residence app, you’ll obtain a notification and listen to a customized ring (even when the telephone is on silent or if Do Not Disturb is enabled).

At launch, we’re partnering with some restaurant chains and can add extra within the US later this 12 months.

To listen to some predictions earlier than the purple carpet, attempt “Hey Google, what are your Oscars predictions? Or” Hey Google, who do you suppose is greatest dressed on the Oscars? “You may as well attend the awards evening by saying,” Hey Google, give me. a prize”.
