During its I/O Developers Conference on Tuesday, Google did a live demo of the next-generation of Google Assistant running on a Pixel phone.

Open Calendar
Open Calculator
Open Photos
Set a timer for 10 minutes
What’s the weather today?
What about tomorrow?
Show me John Legend on Twitter
Get a Lyft ride to my hotel
Turn the flashlight on
Turn it off
Take a selfie

When asked to get a Lyft ride to “my hotel,” it knew where she was staying.
