Google has launched a new assistant feature called My Storytime that lets parents pre-record bedtime stories for their kids. This new feature was inspired by military families who have a parent deployed overseas.
My Storytime lets the parent record or upload existing audio files online and have them immediately accessible on Smart Displays and speakers. To access stories, all a child needs to say is “Hey Google, talk to My Storytime.” Recordings can be shared with approved members and friends, with a collaboration aspect available.
All recordings are saved securely on the cloud. Only you and those you share them with will be able to access them. Setting it up requires a Google Account, specifically, the same one used by the Google Nest device. Google Assistant My Storytime is available for use now.
