Google announced its conversation actions for the Google Home this past week, which are similar to the Amazon Echo’s skills but instead prompt users to converse with Home to get something done. Today we got a better idea of Google’s partners. Domino’s Pizza, Genius, and WebMD will all be supported, according to VentureBeat. Publications, like BuzzFeed, The Wall Street Journal, and CNN will also have actions. The new actions are available starting today, bringing the total number of conversation actions up to 35.
Clearly the only skill we care about is WebMD because what could go wrong? Anyone who has fallen down a rabbit hole of symptoms, diagnoses, and statistics on WebMD knows one search can take an unexpected turn. Please go see a doctor because I promise it’s usually not as bad you think. Doctors are good. WebMD is fine.
