Google is adding a new voice control feature to Android devices, including the Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C, Pixel, Pixel XL, and the Pixel 2.
These new features are called Assistant Assist and the features are available only to Android-powered devices.
If you’re using a Nexus 6, Pixel or Pixel XL and you have Google Assistant installed on your device, you can add the new voice commands to Google Now and use these new voice controls to access Google Now’s more advanced features.
You can access Assistant Assist by opening the Settings app, tapping Voice and speaking a phrase.
You’ll be asked to provide a voice command.
If your Google Assistant device has a microphone, you’ll be able to use voice commands without any action.
If Assistant Assist is set up on your phone, you may have to turn it on in order to use the voice commands.
You should see an Assistant Assistant icon in the bottom right corner of the Assistant app.
You may need to tap on the Assistant Assistant Icon to activate the feature.
You will be prompted to enter a voice phrase and then the Assistant will start to interpret the phrase.
Assistant Assist can be disabled if you want to turn off voice recognition for certain situations.
Voice commands can also be used to control Google Now by using a separate, more powerful Google Assistant app on your smartphone.
You don’t need to install Assistant Assist on your Google Home or Google Home Mini.
It’s just a Google Assistant-enabled phone or tablet.
In the Google Assistant interface, you use the phrase, “OK Google.”
You’ll see a voice prompt that will ask you to say the command.
To add the Google Voice commands to Assistant Assist, simply say “OK” and the Google assistant will respond with the new Google Voice command.
For example, “Ok Google, ask me how to add Google Home to my calendar.”
In addition to the new features, Assistant Assist also supports the Voice Command API, which allows you to add voice commands directly to the Google Home app without having to install the Google Assist app.
These voice commands will be accessible through the Assistant interface or through Google Now on your Android device.
Google is also introducing a new Voice Command dialog box.
The new Voice Commands dialog box lets you see what voice commands are available in Google Now.
You must be logged in to use Voice Commands.
For the first time, you will be able add voice-activated commands from your Android smartphone to Assistant Assistant Assist.
You might need to wait for a few seconds for the Google voice to recognize the new commands.
Google Assistant Assistant can now do more than just speak commands to you.
For instance, the new Voice Control dialog box also lets you add text or a picture to a voice response.
You have to set the picture to your preferred picture style.
You also have to create an image with a photo, video, or voice and then tap “Create.”
If the picture is too small, you might have to choose an image size or resize it manually.
If the image isn’t suitable for the desired format, you also have the option of creating a new image.
When you create the new image, you have to upload the file to the Assistant App or to your Android phone.
Google also added a new option for you to customize your Google Voice prompt.
You now have a new setting that lets you create a new prompt for each voice command you say.
You just have to add the voice command and set the prompt’s title and description to what you want.
