According tomedia reports, Google’s latest update may make users less annoying about the alarm clock: it brings a new feature that will automatically change the role of the alarm clock based on different times and weather of the day, theoretically playing some appropriate music. Currently, this feature is limited to one device: Lenovo’s Smart Clock Smart Clock.
This is a small smart display with Google Home Mini features and a screen that shows time and weather. Google says the feature — known as Impromptu — is part of Google’s Assistant, but that means it should be used in other smart displays and even phones in the future.
Google points out that all the music in the new feature is created and selected by Agenta, an open source music tool that Google has been creating based on machine learning.
This feature will be rolled out globally today on Lenovo devices. The smart clock, which previously retailed for $80, now appears to be down to $50, which is more competitive than Amazon’s $60 Echo Show 5.
