Google Assistant can now help you find “good news”


If you’re reading this on your Android phone or sitting next to your Google Home, we have a new voice command to try out with the Google Assistant.

“Hey Google, tell me something good”

As you’re probably well aware of, we are inundated with news, more than ever before. While keeping up with news helps us stay informed about the world around us, you might have noticed that most news stories cover the negative aspects of our society, a tragedy that’s unfolding or the latest political scandal. These news stories are necessary and often important, but they always seem to choke out the handful of good news stories that highlight the ways that we are making the world a better place.

Since Google News aggregates news from thousands of different sources around the globe, Google thought it would be a good idea to allow Google Assistant to sort through all the noise to find news stories which highlight new innovations, stories of hope and the kindness of the human spirit. So, if you’re feeling a bit depressed with today’s news, just say “Hey Google, tell me something good” and Google Assistant will pull up that should help change your mood and restore your faith in the human race.
