We can call ‘Google Assistant’ as our personal assistant as well.
Google Assistant is artificial intelligence (AI)-powered virtual assistant developed by Google. And primarily available on mobile and smart home devices. Google’s voice-powered assistant can perform a range of tasks like Amazon’s Alexa. One can find it on a wide range of mobile phone devices. Even iPhone users can download an iOS version of Google Assistant.
Do you know what exactly can you do with Google Assistant? Here we have mentioned some features that will help you do more with your phone. From giving you the latest news brief to Netflix shows, Youtube videos to your TV google assistant to assist you.
Unlock your Pixel-
Let the google assistant unlock your device. You love it when your device’s screen is off and Google Assistant responds to your voice and opens it. But you hate it when your PIN and fingerprint methods appear on the screen. It requires an extra step to unlock the device. You can bypass these additional steps by using Google Assistant’s voice command to unlock your device. All you just have to go into your Google Assistant settings and select OK Google Detection followed by Trusted Voice.
Open apps with just your voice-
Let’s say your hands are wet or dirty or busy with some other tasks. But you have to check your latest Gmail notifications. All you have to just say, “OK, Google, open Gmail,” and watch Gmail open. You can use this command to open other apps, including third-party apps, as well.
Screen your phone calls-
Tired of getting by telemarketers calls? The latest Pixels include a Call Screen feature where the Google Assistant will answer the phone on your behalf. An onscreen transcript of the call will appear so that one can see whether the call is coming from someone you can safely ignore. If it is a telemarketer, can just mark the call as spam.
Take a piece of advice on where to eat, drink, dance or shop-
You’re out with friends to an unfamiliar place, and clueless to where you should go for dinner or dancing. Google Assistant can help you on that: By using Nearby feature, you can find out what places around cater to whatever you’re in the mood for. Just ask Google Assistant to “show me nearby restaurants,” and find the list of great spots just a tap away with its star ratings, address, address and a link for calling the restaurant.
Take a vacation spots suggestion from Google Assistant-
Planning for a getaway, Google Assistant can serve as a virtual travel planner. Just ask Google Assistant, “What are some great vacation ideas?” And Google Assistant will pull up a long list of vacation spots with its complete information. Or to be more specific, you can also ask, for example, “What are the best places for vacation in November” to find seasonal travel hotspots.
Save your favorite Netflix shows and movies
Want to kick back and enjoy a new movie or old TV show? Just ask Google Assistant to start streaming your show. Or you can even get specific and say, “Play Stranger Things on Netflix,” and also can watch it or any other show at any time. The feature can be hit-and-miss, with older shows like MacGyver and Murder.Test your IQ-Yes, Google Assistant has a quiz on it. One can play a quiz on Indian culture, tech related, Indian history and many more. The Assistant will keep track of the score, and let you know how you did at the end.
