Quick tips to get the most from your phone, your favorite apps and your Ting service. No fluff. Just the tips.
Do more with Google Assistant so you can do less
Today’s tip covers native Assistant, the one that comes with the latest Android smartphones and can open apps, send messages on your behalf, brief you with the news and more.
Google Assistant is available natively on Android and in the App Store for iOS. It’s also available inside Allo, Google’s latest messaging app, where it aims to help you with daily tasks based on what you’re chatting about.
A slight catch for iOS users – the Google Assistant app will not have the Always listening feature that’s available on Android. The quickest way to prompt Google Assistant on iOS is by adding it to your list of widgets so it’s never far from reach. You can also talk and type your requests directly inside the Google Assistant app (and through Allo).
We’re going to show you our favorite tips for making the most of Google Assistant. Put up your feet and let Google’s AI get to work. Maybe toss in a little please and thank you every now and then.
