One of the largest IT product-based company, Google revealed updates for its Artificial intelligent voice assistant and with some of the new privacy tools to give people with some of the more control over how they are being tracked on the go or in their own home as well.

The company is now also offerings it’s new “Incognito”” privacy control and face intensifying scrutiny over how many user’s IT companies collect and sell for the purpose of advertising. Facebook dedicated much of its own conference last week to connecting people with some off the more private channels rather than broadly on the social media network.
Incognito mode has also been offered on some of the various browsers which include the Google Chrome, signing in to a Google or with some other account generally negates it.

Google also revealed its assistant will be book cars and tickets with the help of online forms on Android smartphones later this year. The technology behind this is called by the name as Duplex, was released to much fanfare last year when Google demonstrated it making a call to even book a reservation of restaurant.
