This is just feature matching Google Assistant. What about something more proactive? Read my email and tell me if I can switch to a different utility/insurance co to save money. Look at my travel history and suggest the perfect vacation for next year. Look out for a good deal on something I need to buy and ask me if I want to order it. I want Scarlett from Her, I'm sick of dumb assistants.

Me: Hey Google play my Morning Tunes playlist
Google Home: Plays _my_ Spotify Morning Tunes playlist
Me: (while Spotify is playing) Hey Google add this song to my library
Google Home: Ok, I added that song to your Spotify music library
My Girlfriend: Hey Google play my Morning Tunes playlist
Google Home: Plays _her_ Spotify Morning Tunes playlist
Me: Hey Google what's on my calendar today?
Google Home: What's on _my_ personal calendar
My Girlfriend: Hey Google what's on my calendar today?
Google Home: What's on _her_ personal calendar
I could keep going... but I don't need to. Apple completely forgot that many people in this world are not single people living by themselves. They also completely forgot that _Millions_ of people like Spotify...
Hell, I've been doing this with Siri since it came out and even before then with my Notes app on my iPhone—I think of something, I write it down or dictate it into one of many Notes itms that are then sectioned off with various groupings which themselves are often categorized further. If you use a Reminders app or the Timer you're already doing that. You've never once put change into a parking meter, saw how much time it gave you and then said, "Hey Siri set timer for x-minutes"?
Hey Google, this is where I parked my car.
Weeks later: Hey Google, where'd I park my car? [Map shows you]
Hey Google, remember that my car is at green 16
Weeks later: Hey Google, what'd I tell you to remember about my car?
Google: You asked me to remember that your car is at green 16
Does this imply that the Google product would tell a person in your house about your meeting or to-do items if you not home. I like the fact the someone could not ask the Siri to tell them what my schedule looks like, I may had date with my girlfriend and would not want my wife to know about it.
In all seriousness, this is stuff Google does not think about, they through so much at a wall and wait to see if it stick or falls off. They apologies when they screw their customers, ops sorry I meant to say product since we are their product not their customer.

In a few months Samsung release their first smart speaker called SamPod which look exactly like HomePod and with similar but watered down technology, just a month before Apple release their HomePod. And you know what is going to happen then when eventually Apple release theirs? The internet is exploding with "Apple copy Samsung again!" everywhere. Fact be damn.Except Apple is not really doing a "wireless speaker" considering it got a A8... So, that's kind of a non sicatur, in fact Apple is probably opening a whole new market segment in audio equipment.If Samsung puts a big chip in their speakers they'll be copying Apple.
