Google Assistant is a helpful little companion that Android users can make use of. It’s Android’s reaction to Siri, for any Apple fans reading this.
It’s extremely useful for rapidly answering questions, getting directions to various locations, carrying out tasks on your Android phone, and far too many other items to list.
The list of questions you can ask your Google Assistant is infinite, but a recent update is rumoured to change the way you talk to it once and for all.
The old way ‘Hey Google’
Android users understand the frustration of having to say, “hey Google,” any time they need assistance.
This isn’t a problem if you’re alone indoors away from everyone, so when you’re in Tesco doing your weekly shopping and need help with a recipe for that night’s tea, it’s a little embarrassing barking ‘hey Google’ down your phone.
Google, according to Pocket-lint, is thinking of a way to make life simpler for Android users who will use their Google Assistant for day-to-day activities.
If it’s answering calls or turning off your alarm, Google’s reported upgrade would do so without the need to say “hello Google.”
This upgrade would pave the way for consumers to communicate with their phones in the future. You’ll be able to converse with your virtual assistant much as you can with your mates at the bar.
If you want to get ahead of this upgrade and get a new Android phone, you’ve come to the right spot.
