Today marks the 90th Oscars® and while the Google Assistant might not be 90 years wise just yet, it can help you keep up with the Oscars* — and the best movies — before, during and after the show.
First up, let’s cover the basics “Hey Google, when are the Oscars?” and then you can set a reminder with the Assistant on your phone or speaker like Google Home.
Next, it’s never a bad idea to do some research. Just ask the Assistant: “Hey Google, who’s nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars?” and if you haven’t seen the movie, you can follow up with the Assistant on your phone or TV: “Show me the trailer for … [insert your favorite nominee].”
Who doesn’t love a good game? Prepare your Oscars bingo board: “Hey Google, who’s nominated for Best Actress?” Or get into the prediction game by saying “Hey Google, who’s going to win Best Picture?”
And, if you happen to miss a few moments of the big show, just say “Hey Google, who won the Oscar for Best Actor?”
From preparing you for an Oscars movie marathon with friends — “Hey Google, who stars in [insert favorite nominated movie here🎥!]” — to enjoying the big night, “Hey Google, turn down the lights,” the Google Assistant is here to help you do more.
