With Google Home, you are now in charge of asking the questions, dish out instructions, ask for repetition of steps, and even move on to the next step. Simply fire up Google Assistant or use to Google's search app to look for a recipe on your phone, and hit the "Send to Google Home button".

To get developers and tinkerers started, Google has detailed a DIY project that utilizes its personal assistant: a "mocktails mixer" able to make mixed drinks using voice commands thanks, in part, to Google Assistant.

The API is completely free if it is a bit of fun you want to have in your own backyard, however, commercializing it will require you to obtain written permission from Google. Today Google has announced that the Assistant inside the Home is going to learn 5 million recipes over the coming week. While Google Home could access a few recipes before, this latest update is a dramatic expansion that pulls from several big publishers, including "Bon Appetit, The New York Times, Food Network, and more", Google explained. Ask your speaker for a recipe.

For all of you nerds out there, here's a rundown of what the Google Assistant SDK consists of. However, with the release of the developer preview of the Google Assistant SDK, anyone can port the assistant to their devices. There are a whole host of virtual assistants out there now and companies like Google, Microsoft are racing to ensure that their assistant stands at the top.

Check out a small clip showing the new feature for the Google Home.
