Bringing Tales to Life.
Read Along with Disney is a Google Assistant-based action that adds magic to story time with Google Home. In this groundbreaking audio experience, families can enjoy augmented reading adventures with the world’s most beloved characters. Compatible with over a dozen Disney Little Golden Books, your adventure starts by simply saying, “Hey Google, read along with Disney.”
As you read aloud, Google Home brings your narration to life, augmenting it with property-specific music and sound effects. As story time with children is often not linear, Read Along with Disney is designed to conform to your journey. Skip ahead, go back, repeat a page, or even take a break; your Google Home will automatically adjust to where you pick up and leave off, cueing background music while idle.
Due to its natural interface, kids are interacting more and more with AI assistants via in-home devices. Oftentimes, the increasing level of technology present during childhood development is associated with negatives, such as stunting imagination or interfering with face-to-face interaction. Read Along with Disney instead promotes positive interaction, leveraging AI to offer enriching and engaging experiences for children and families, thus bringing them closer together through technology. Read Along with Disney represents a best-in-class example of an opportunity space that leverages the unique qualities of VUI and AI, while simultaneously stimulating a child’s creativity, and kindling nostalgia for caregivers.
