Google Chrome To Help Users Automate Changing Passwords Using The Assistant

Google is emailing through Google Search Console about a new Google Assistant feature that will offer users the ability to automatically change their passwords to login to your website in Google Chrome. The Chrome feature, I think is several months old, but the notice from Google Search Console, I think, is new.

J.J. James Patterson sent me a screenshot of this notice on Twitter that reads “New Google Assistant feature will go live on [domain here] in two weeks.” Then it says, “in two weeks, Google Chrome will begin to offer some users the ability to automate changing their password on your website using Google Assistant. When this feature is enabled, Google Assistant can perform the following actions on behalf of the user:”

  • Google Assistant automatically logs the user in with the right credentials and navigates to the account settings page on your website. If the credentials saved in Chrome are outdated, the Google Assistant can help the user reset their password for supported sites.
  • The user chooses either to use a password generated by Chrome or to create their own password.
  • Google Assistant helps the user submit the changed password on your website.

Google said this feature is “powered by Duplex on the Web.” Google said you can disable this feature on your site in Google Search Console.

Here is a screen shot of this email:

The link to the duplex on the web in the email J.J. received goes to this Google help document that says Duplex on the Web for Search Console “feature is only available if your site is eligible, and you have been contacted about participating.” If you are eligible, clicking here you can enable it in Search Console.

The help document has this all under the automated password change section that says:

Enable Duplex on the Web to automate changing site passwords using Google Assistant. Within Chrome on Android, users will have the option to use Google Assistant to automate the process of changing their password on your site. You can see a demo of the feature recorded at the Google I/O conference.

Here is the video demo:

This has been popping up for me on Chrome a lot over the past few days:

Google Workspace vs. Microsoft 365: What’s the best office suite for business?

Published

Google G Suite vs. Microsoft Office

Once upon a time, Microsoft Office ruled the business world. By the late ‘90s and early 2000s, Microsoft’s office suite had brushed aside rivals such as WordPerfect Office and Lotus SmartSuite, and there was no competition on the horizon.

Then in 2006 Google came along with Google Docs & Spreadsheets, a collaborative online word processing and spreadsheet duo that was combined with other business services to form the Google Apps suite, later rebranded as G Suite, and now as Google Workspace. Although Google’s productivity suite didn’t immediately take the business world by storm, over time it has gained both in features and in popularity, boasting 6 million paying customers, according to Google’s most recent public stats in March 2020.

Microsoft, meanwhile, has shifted its emphasis away from its traditional licensed Office software to Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), a subscription-based version that’s treated more like a service, with frequent updates and new features. Microsoft 365 is what we’ve focused on in this story.

Nowadays, choosing an office suite isn’t as simple as it once was. We’re here to help.

Google Workspace vs. Microsoft 365

Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 have much in common. Both are subscription-based, charging businesses per-person fees every month, in varying tiers, depending on the capabilities their customers are looking for. Although Google Workspace is web-based, it has the capability to work offline as well. And while Microsoft 365 is based on installed desktop software, it also provides (less powerful) web-based versions of its applications.

Both suites work well with a range of devices. Because it’s web-based, Google Workspace works in most browsers on any operating system, and Google also offers mobile apps for Android and iOS. Microsoft provides Office client apps for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android, and its web-based apps work across browsers.
