Google adds Assistant’s smart home controls to smartphones

Google

Google Assistant is among the best personal assistants on the market. Google has been improving its virtual helper since the launch day to offer a better user experience. The Assistant did not have a good start when it launched to the public. However, things have changed so much since then.

The Assistant is now smarter and better than before. Google officially integrated it with the Android operating system. Phones running Android 7.0 or higher includes the built-in Assistant, allowing users to interact with apps and services very quickly.

Google has been adding new features and skills to its personal assistant for months. Google’s move aims to take on other rivals like Apple Siri, Amazon Alexa, or Microsoft Cortana. Like any other virtual helper out there, the Assistant allows you to control your home appliances with voice command.

However, controlling your home appliances using Google Assistant is pretty annoying. If you are not satisfied with your commands, you need to start the whole thing again. Google has acknowledged that and promises to fix this in the future update.

Today is the day. Google has improved the Assistant’s smart home controls, allowing you to quickly control your home. From now on, you simply need to correct your commands using some simple taps of buttons. You can add sliders or buttons that help you quickly control things, like adjusting your home’s temperature or turning off the lights.

Google has been improving the user interface of the Assistant in recent months. Google needs more time to make sure everything is ready this year. In reality, Google has been testing new UI on select devices.

Google is facing a lot of competition in the personal assistant market. Apple Siri is getting better and smarter every year, while Amazon Alexa is expanding to more countries. In the upcoming Android Pie, we are expecting to see a huge improvement for the Assistant. Google has started rolling out the developer beta of its latest Android version for testing purposes.

The final build of Android Pie will be available for all users worldwide this fall. Android Pie will hit select devices running Google’s pure Android.
