Google announces new AFL and NRL integrations for Home and Assistant

Google have announced that the their search engine and Google Assistant are now capable of quickly delivering sports news, scores, scheduling and even jokes.

Starting today, Aussie fans can check live scores, match results, upcoming fixtures, and ladders for their favorite footy codes, including AFL, NRL, and Australian Rugby, in Google Search and using the Google Assistant.

According to Aisling Finch, Marketing Director, Google Australia & New Zealand, Google "know that sport sparks the Aussie spirit like nothing else, and getting information about the sports and teams you love is important to keep you cheering, and across the action. And with the AFL, NRL and Australian Rugby seasons here, it’s the perfect time to gear up for the games that captivate our nation."

In addition - you'll also now be able to ask your Assistant to tell you an AFL joke, make season predictions by saying “Ok Google, who’s going to win the flag?" and give club-specific news by saying “Hey Google, play the Sydney Swans news” or “Play the West Coast Eagles news.”

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
