There’s nothing better than being deeply immersed in a great book. And now, Google Assistant has teamed up with Reese’s Book Club to help make your reading experience even better. So enjoy a hands-free and immersive reading experience on all your favorite Nest devices, not to mention great book recommendations monthly.
With this partnership, you’ll be able to say, “Hey Google, read with Reese’s Book Club,” on any Nest smart speaker, smart display and Assistant-enabled mobile device as long as you’re in an English-speaking country. Then, actor Reese Witherspoon will share her monthly book picks, offer exclusive commentary about each book she’s reading, or even share a review.
Better yet, users can take a quick quiz for personalized book recommendations, then dive into captivating stories. Here’s a quote from Reese herself:
“I’m thrilled to bring Reese’s Book Club to Google Assistant users around the globe. People can now discover our monthly book club picks, get personalized book recommendations and hear exclusive content from me, just by saying, ‘Hey Google, read with Reese’s Book Club.’ As an avid reader, I think I’ve found my favorite new Assistant feature!” — Reese Witherspoon
Existing Reese’s Book Club members can easily link their accounts to Google Nest devices, and if you’re a first-time user looking for new content to enjoy, you can quickly sign up for Reese’s Book Club with a Google account. Some of the content is still available without signing up, making it an excellent option for bookworms.
Once you say, “Hey Google, read with Reese’s Book Club,” you’ll see a list of the current and previous month’s book picks, not to mention a little blurp or video about why Reese recommended that specific book. Her reviews are insightful and will likely make you want to read the full book. If so, simply download the Google Play Books for Android or iOS, find it, and get started. And if you’re too busy to read one right now, you can add books to the “book pile” and flip some pages when you have the time.
