Talking Tech - October 3:
Donald Trump goes to hospital; Google doesn’t want you to wait on hold

Sometimes we don’t talk about tech..

We spoke about the breaking news that President Donald Trump was to be taken to hospital for COVID-19.

Google’s Assistant will go on hold for you

When Google unveiled their new phone this week, the Google Pixel 5, it also announced a very cool feature called ‘hold for me’.

Never again will you need to hear Dave Dobyn on repeat for 45 minutes, you can go about your day and when it’s your turn it’ll let you know.

Want to check in on your assistant? Look at your phone and you’ll see what’s happening – it’ll tell you if there is music playing and it’ll even transcribe any announcements made. Handy!
