Now we're cooking-the Assistant on Google Home is your secret ingredient

Seems like Google Assistant has just become smarter. Same. But starting today, home cooks can get some high-tech help courtesy of Google Home's new feature that reads each step out loud to you as you cook. If you want to use the Assistant on an Android device, you'll end up following the same process phone makers go through.

It'll know you're cooking and move forward with the recipe regardless of whatever else you ask it between steps.
