Google has launched a new ancillary feature called “My Storytime” which makes the user to record stories and accessible on those devices including Nest Mini, Nest Hub as well as Hub Max. The feature is primarily for parents where they can record themselves to read stories chapters and then the child can ask the Google Nest device to play those recordings aloud, VentureBeat reported on Thursday .
Reportedly, the feature was inspired by Jennifer Oliver, a military spouse who posed with her daughters on Internet message boards.
“You can go to MyStorytime.com to create a personal account for your family and start creating your own library of recorded stories. And once they are back home with parents, all they need is Must say “Hey Google, talk to my storytime” your personal stories, “Oliver wrote in a blog post.
My Storytime users can record stories directly (using a microphone) from the official website, or upload MP3 audio files with a device within the My Storyboard dashboard.

Google states that the files are saved securely in the cloud and can only be accessed by those with whom it is shared.
She added, “Nothing can be changed at Daddy’s house, but hopefully my storytime will help make it a little easier to get through the next deployment and it will provide some comfort to other families as well.”
