    Google Assistant, a big step backwards language wise compared to Google Now. For Android Wear this turns a tool into a toy.

    "Testing" responds with
    "Debug ok."
    <some large number>
    "That was weird."

    Thanks for the tip, I am really enjoying using google assistant. My 8 year old son is so amazed and crazy about this new feature in my smartphone :)

    I just wish they had more English-speaking experts to handle creating English commands in South Korea. It often takes goofy sentences to get results for local Korean info in English, and the grammar is way off. I am a professor at Hansung University, and happy to help Google in any way I can.
