Story time reading just got a notch better as Google has partnered with Disney to bring special effects to the entire experience.
In the new tweak to then feature, you can start reading one of Disney’s Little Golden Books out loud and your Google Home device will play music and relevant sound effects along with you.
All you need do to use the new feature is to say, “Hey Google, let’s read along with Disney”, Then the Google Home will use voice recognition to sense where you are in the story, Verge writes.
If you decide to flip ahead or go backward in the story, say if your kid asks you to repeat a fun part, your Google Home will sense that and switch its music and sounds to reflect where you are.
Also, if you pause, perhaps because your kid has a question, the Google Home will play ambient music in the background until you start reading again.
Books supported on the Disney Read Along feature on Google Home include: Moana, Coco, Jack Jack Attack, The Three Little Pigs, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Mickey Mouse and his Spaceship, Toy Story 3, Peter Pan, and Mickey’s Christmas Carol.
It’s a welcome change, if you ask me. Bedtime stories just got more fun.
