Google Assistant Now Understands Commands for Third-Party Applications

Google Assistant now becoming, even more, smarter than before. After the seven new languages which also includes the Hindi, Google has brought the new update to its assistant. The new assistant now understands all the custom commands given to it for the installed the third-party websites.

Google is planning to make their assistant even more flexible. According to the blog post by Google, Assitant will now support the “Custom Device Actions.” The new assistant letting developers create their own device-specific commands that user can give to Google Assistant to perform the action on their application.


This is interesting to know that applications developers are now allowed to create their own commands. So that means now developers will build applications to build up the integrations for the Google’s Voice Assistant. The third-party application developers can create any voice commands. Even they can create the conversation based voice commands. A user can give that commands to the Google Voice Assistant and as a result, an assistant will perform the action. Earlier we have seen that Apple’s Siri has the same ability for custom commands like if you say “Hey Siri, Send Hi to Alex on WhatsApp”. Siri will send the message. I think this makes smartphone use easily in some ways not “every way.”
