Google assistant over the years has always been compared to Siri which I remember Siri winning in a poll surprisingly so I guess I have to share some features and commands you can do on Google’s Assistant just to see if you guys might jump ship.

What is Google Assistant?

Google Assistant is an artificial intelligence–powered virtual assistant developed by Google that is primarily available on mobile and smart home devices.

Google Assistant is smart and very well integrated with Android. You can use it to open apps, send messages, make calls, play a specific song on YouTube Music, check the weather, and many other things. It is also available on iOS and other devices like smart speakers, smartwatches, and more.

7 Simple Commands You can do on your Google Assistant.

  • “Good morning” — This command is a catch-all for your morning routine. Assistant can give you a weather report, details on your route to work, and recite the latest news bulletins.
  • “Wake me up at …” — Assistant can fill in as your personal alarm clock.
  • “Open …” — Open up any app on your phone just by saying its name.
  • “Set a reminder for …” — Add reminders to your calendar, complete with time and place, so you’ll never miss a date again.
  • “Turn on Bluetooth” — Toggle Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, your phone’s flashlight, and pretty much every other hardware option without reaching for a settings menu.
  • “Add … to my shopping list” — Google can store online shopping lists for you and when paired up with Assistant you can quickly add and remove items via voice.

5 Best Google Assistant Features You Should Use

1. Play, or Hum Music with Google Assistant

Want to know a song playing? You can easily just ask your Google assistant about a song playing and it will give you all the needed details. Just ask “what song is this”, “who sang this song” or in any language. I even tried it in Chinese. You can also request a song to be played.

2. Third-Party App Messaging With Google Assistant

I really find it simple when you ask your Google Assistant to send a message on telegram to someone or sent a WhatsApp message to someone. You can even tweet through your Google assistant.

3. Google Assistant Interpreter mode

This Google Assistant skill is similar to the translation skill, but Interpreter Mode can translate a conversation in real time between 44 different languages. Just say, “be my {insert language} interpreter,” to have Google Assistant show and speak both sides of a multi-language conversation in real-time.

You can use Google’s Interpreter Mode on any Google Home speaker or smart display. Say “Be my French interpreter” to start up a bilingual conversation. Google will translate what you’re saying into French in real-time and can translate your partner’s response back into English as well. 

4. Assign reminders To Others

While you could already send yourself reminders, you can now have Google Assistant remind your partner, kids or roommates to do things like pick up the dry cleaning, preheat the oven, and take out the trash. What you have to do is to ask google assistant to remind the person to do the specific task.

5. Reading Your Articles loud

With the command “Read my screen” or “Read This Article”, Google Assistant will read the opened web page aloud to you. This option applies only to Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and Drawings on a browser, like Chrome. When you use these products, a screen reader can read text on your screen aloud.

Turn screen reader on or off
  • On your Android phone or tablet, open your device’s Settings app and then Google and then Manage your Google Account.
  • At the top, tap Data & personalization.
  • Under “General preferences for the web,” tap Accessibility.
  • Turn Screen reader on or off.
