"Hey Google, Ask Chabad..."
« on: December 05, 2018, 08:15:52 PM »
I had to make a thread about this. I was hoping that someday our virtual assistants' would tell us at least what time Shabbos is. BH it seems like Chabad.org has been working on this for some time and finally we can get Shabbos times and other results directly from Chabad.org just by saying "Ok Google, Ask Chabad...". Thanks to Chabad.org's efforts, this initiative makes shabbos times and other things reach 400 Million devices worldwide. Kol Hakavod to them!

Examples of Chabad on your Google assistant:

“Ask Chabad when is Shabbat candle lighting”

“Ask Chabad to play today’s Torah class”

“Ask Chabad what is the Hebrew date”

“Ask Chabad when is sundown”

“Ask Chabad when is the new month”

“Ask Chabad when is Shabbat candle lighting in Los Angeles on December 28th”


P.S. I did notice my phone was picking up my 'CH's' as in 'Chabad' and 'Menachem' lately, based on the article below this was one of the things Google tuned their AI to pick up and it was in effect for some time.

I always just ask for sunset time, and it's accurate - same as chabad.org

Where do they pull it from? Secular sources?
