Google Home was severely half-baked at launch, launching with only a fraction of the capabilities that rival Amazon Echo / Alexa were able to pull off. Support for these news services certainly evens the playing field a bit, but Google still has a long way to go before they can be crowned the king of the smart home speaker. You can certainly expect more services to be added to Google Home (Assistant) in the near future.
