Google Does Conferencing, Needs Assistant

Below described an announced  business extension of Hangouts. It would seem that a natural next step would combine this with Google Assistant.   A Google Home listening in?  A simple example might have the attentive assistant construct a 'to do' list from the conversation.  Beyond that,  the assistant could do followup research for the call based on a knowledge graph of participants and the goals of the meeting.    Post the results and suggest other participants and future sub tasks.  The big value could be in assistant software rather than just hardware.
