Gmail adds scheduled emails and improves Smart Compose for its 15th birthday (Updated)

It's hard to believe that Gmail is fifteen years old today. In human years, that would equate to lots of sneaking around, unapproved driving, under-age drinking, and daily existential crisis about everything — i.e. normal teenage drama. But in Gmail years, this means we're getting some demure features. Namely, the email service finally lets us schedule emails.

We rarely speak of Assistant on Android TV because changes in the platform are highly dependent on TV and set-top box manufacturers, infrequent updates, and sometimes server-side pushes from Google.

There are a few irregularities right now, though, such as inconsistent behavior depending on precisely which setting you flip it to, and Google's support page for the Assistant on Android TV hasn't been updated to mention the new support just yet.

Google Assistant routines are now official in many languages/countries (but not Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, or Sweden)

Google Assistant routines can save you a lot of time by executing multiple commands in succession after you say a simple sentence. They started off as "My Day," which brought a simple morning routine, but then multiple routines were enabled, as were custom routines, and finally scheduled routines. But until recently, they were only officially available if you set your Assistant to use English (US). Now, they're supported in many more language/country combinations.

Your Google Assistant is bilingual starting today — at least, for any pair of six specific languages

Google's Assistant has been making great strides in both functionality and speech recognition since its original release in the far off year of 2016. In fact, Google says that it has improved so much that, starting today, it can recognize two different languages interchangeably. Your Google Home is now bilingual, something no other digital assistant can do — at least, since Google's other assistant, Google Now. But there is a caveat: it supports only two languages among a list of six.

Google Home and Wifi launch in Spain imminent as products show up on El Corte Inglés

Back at Google I/O, we missed a little interesting nugget of information. It was quietly announced that Google Home and Home Mini will be launching in seven new countries during 2018: Denmark, Korea, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, and Sweden. And it's Spain we're focusing on today as it seems like the launch is imminent in the country: both the Google Home and Home Mini were briefly posted on El Corte Inglés's website then removed, plus the site is also showing Google Wifi router 1-pack and 3-pack (those pages haven't been taken down yet).
