Along the same lines, you'll also be able to "favorite" photos that you really like. And these include Dora the Explorer's The Little Christmas Tree, and PAW Patrol's Holiday Helpers, as well as many more. For example, all you have to say is "Hey Google, let's read along with Mickey's Christmas Carol". Are our kids growing accustomed to commanding the Google Homes and Siris of the world to turn on the lights without the politeness of a "please"? With this update, a new feature arrives called "Pretty Please" which encourages users to be more polite towards their virtual assistant. This is a feature that Google actually debuted back at Google I/O over the summer, and it is finally rolling out.
For now, it looks like simply adding "please" to your request will result in some positive vibes such as "What a classy way to ask", or "I like hearing that magic word". This is a feature that parents can toggle on and off at will, as well.

Google is always looking to make the Google Assistant a bit more, well helpful.
GoogleAssistant wants to help you with your manners. From grocery lists to holiday gift lists, you can now capture your thoughts and manage multiple lists in one central place. That means you can create, say, a gift list, then forget about it until you keep in mind to add extra items, when you can just bring the list back and easily update it using nothing but voice commands. They just have to command Assistant to call Santa and then an interactive game will start. That's okay - Assistant won't chastise you. Today, they've added a batch of seven new abilities, some of which we heard about at the Google I/O conference last summer. And that's what matters here.
