Tips On Navigating Google Assistant
Released just last month, Google Assistant is the answer to Apple’s personal assistant Siri, and the replacement of Google Now. The software is widely proclaimed as far more developed and thus more useful than its iOS counterpart. With access to the massive Google database that has been steadily learning your likes, dislikes, preferences and habits over the years, it is no wonder that Google Assistant is preferred by many.
Google Assistant is capable of performing an impressive array of tasks and even has a conversational user interface. Here are a few things that you can do through Google Assistant.
Say Good Morning
By saying Good morning to the assistant, you will get a brief update on your tasks and events for the day, according to what you have marked in your Google calendar. You will also receive weather updates and reminders.
Ask for the News
Not only can you ask for the latest news updates by saying ‘Tell me the news’, but you can also set your preferences according to what podcasts you like to hear.
Personalised Daily Updates
In the My Day section of the Google Assistant settings, you can personalise your daily updates according to what you wish to hear and in what order (weather, commute information, appointments, reminders and finally news).
Another feature that places Assistant a step above Siri, is its ability to answer queries conversationally. For example if you ask ‘When is the Lakers game?’ you can also follow up with a question like ‘When was the last time they won?’
Let Google Guide You
Besides locating you on Google Maps, you can also find out what exactly is around you, by simply asking Assistant.
