Dear Google, please make your assistant more ‘personal’

Talk to anyone who owns an Amazon Echo and they’ll soon tell you about how they find themselves having an odd fondness for Alexa - I can’t be the only one who often adds “please” and “thank you” to my commands.

Glad to know I’m not the only one who says ‘please’ after every command to Google 🙂

But as long as Google forces you to bark “Okay Google”, Google Home will surely fail to become a personal assistant. It will be an assistant, sure, and a very good one at that. But it won’t be personal.

Despite being a regular voice-command user on my Nexus phone, I couldn’t agree with this more.
