Sony has certainly been one company to take advantage of Google’s offer of Google Assistant technology for those interested in adding them to their products. At CES 2018 the company took the opportunity to launch new headphones with the Google Assistant built in. Now they are taking things one step further by actually issuing firmware updates for existing products to add Google Assistant to those items as well.
A new update to version 2.0.0 is rolling out now for the WH-1000XM2 over-the-ear headphones and the WI-1000X neckband earphones that include the Google Assistant. By adding in direct support to the device, users should find the Google Assistant is a bit quicker to respond. The update also means spoken notifications can be provided to users. Those who are trying to use the Google Assistant with an iOS device will benefit from this addition along with Android users.
Sony has indicated at least three other headsets will get an update that adds Google Assistant including the WF-1000X, WH-CH900N and WH-H900N. Those models cover both over-the-ear headphones and a pair of wireless earbuds.
