Google Home is getting proactive assistance and visual responses

Google Home was a decent first stab at taking on Amazon’s Echo, but there’s clearly room for improvement.

Google Home will light up to let you know it has an alert for you, so it thankfully won’t just start talking without any prompting. Additionally, you’ll be soon be able to see visual responses to your Home queries on all of your devices.
