Google Announced It is now possible to use Google Assistant with third-party apps on Android phones. So, Android users will be able to find and control their third-party apps when they ask Google Assistant. Google is advancing the ability to use voice commands for popular tasks such as finding apps, sending text messages, asking for news on Twitter, or browsing your shopping cart. For example, you can now say, “Hey Google, find a warm blanket on ETC” and get exactly what you’re looking for. Or if you’re looking for something (or something) special in an app, just say, “Hey Google, open Selena Gomez on Snapchat.”
Previously, Google Assistant’s third-party support was largely limited to a few custom actions, mostly applications that run within the assistant. With the new functionality, Google Assistant will work directly with the apps installed on your phone. Now, these types of voice commands will work with over 30 top apps on Google Play. “People do a lot more with their apps than just open and search in apps, and we want to enable voice commands for those frequent tasks. Now you can do things like play music, start a run, post on social media, order. Food, pay back to a friend, enlist a ride – this is just your voice listing and on, from today you can try more using your voice with over 30 of the top apps globally available in English on Google Play. , More apps are coming, “Google said.
Google Assistant also brings new functionality to most common functions. For your most common tasks, you can create custom shortcut phrases. So, instead of saying “Hey Google, tighten my shoes with Nike Adaptate”, you can create a shortcut by saying “Hey Google, lead it”. You can explore the suggested shortcuts or create your own by simply saying “Hey Google, show my shortcuts” to go to the settings screen.
With this new functionality, the assistant makes hands-free navigation much easier if your hands are full. It can also help visually impaired people by offering alternative ways to interact with their apps.
