Google is continuing its assignment to put Assistant anywhere and it is not simply trying to stuff its virtual helper in various hardware, but in more apps as properly. The corporation already inserted Assistant within the Maps app, which is officially unveiled at CES this 12 months. Here at MWC, Assistant is showing up in perhaps an extra private, conversational app — Android Messages.

During a demo, Google confirmed how in a verbal exchange about tapas, reps were able to locate close by restaurants and ship a listing to each different. The card for Casa de Tapas Canota that Assistant sent also has shortcuts to make a call to the eating place, map guidelines and upload a calendar occasion. You also can send greater data by means of pressing on the Home button and asking Assistant to send specific results for your buddy thru Messages.

You decide who sees the data you pick out. This characteristic will be available for English customers international and only for films, restaurants, and the weather in the initial rollout, so one can occur in the coming months.
