Google is now allowing Assistant on Android and iOS devices to read out English stories for the users in India, United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
The available stories to be read by Google Assistant will range from tales about Blaze and the Monster Machines to more classic bedtime stories like Sleeping Beauty and Little Red Riding Hood.
In addition to this, other available features include features like “read along”, which automatically plays sound effects as you read from a number of Disney Little Golden Books, reported TechCrunch.
The selection of supported books available to the users remains limited for now.
The feature was first introduced in 2018, however, it was only made available on Google Home.
Earlier, when a user asked the Assistant to read a story over a smartphone, Assistant would come out with a short inspirational quote or a joke.
Google’s decision pertaining to this new launch comes just in time for the “Tell a Story” day that is celebrated on April 27.
