Google has recently declared that Google Assistant would be updated with help for third-party applications, basically giving clients a further advanced and personalized experience.
All the more explicitly, Google has united with the developers of the 30 most downloaded applications on the Google Play Store to include further Assistant integration, and these incorporate Spotify, Snapchat, Twitter, and others.
“People do a lot more with their apps beyond simply opening and searching within apps, and we want to enable voice commands to those frequent tasks, too,” Google explains.
“Now you can do things like playing music, starting a run, posting on social media, ordering food, paying back a friend, hailing a ride—the list goes on and on—all with just your voice. Starting today, you can try doing more using your voice with more than 30 of the top apps on Google Play available in English globally, with more apps coming.”
Since Google Assistant is a basic part of the experience behind the wheel, this new declaration is big news for Android Auto clients as well.
A few of the applications that are getting further Assistant integration are as of now accessible on Android Auto, and this clearly makes the way for further advanced hands-free interaction when driving. For instance, in Spotify, Google Assistant will let you begin playing explicit mixes and playlists, all by basically saying “Hey Google, open Motivation Mix on Spotify.”
Obviously, this Google Assistant update additionally permits drivers to accomplish more with voice commands behind the wheel. For instance, with improved support for voice commands, applications could end up having the option to post new content, (for example, Twitter or Snapchat), log an action (in activity tracking tools like MyFitnessPal), or even search for products in online stores, however this clearly isn’t suggested behind the wheel.
Google will likewise permit clients to make custom shortcut phrases for all of these, so for instance, on the off chance that you want to play a particular mix on Spotify, you can simply configure the command to be something like “Hey Google, let’s get the party started.”
