Notifications come to Google Assistant, and Alexa goes to Canada

Lots of new features announced by Google today, including improved discovery and notifications (adhoc and via a daily update feature). Very cool stuff that will definitely improve the platform.

Several new additions from Amazon as well - support for Canada, and Sony TVs, on Alexa, and cool new ways to customize Polly. Great stuff!
