For example, after asking the Assistant about the weather, you'll see options for "weather tonight", "weather tomorrow", etc.

You will no longer need to say "talk to Logitech" to control your TV, and can use more natural language like "play channel 4". We'll find out more about what else Wear OS by Google has in store at I/O next week.
