  • You Can Now Use ‘Hey Siri’ to Trigger Google Assistant Using Siri Shortcuts

Beyond setting up a standard shortcut for triggering the Assistant, Google's app seems to donate every single command you give the Assistant as a shortcut option inside iOS' Settings. Additionally, support for Siri Shortcuts also lets you talk to Assistant handsfree on an unlocked device by uttering the same command (if that's the one you pick).

If you're looking to connect your existing speakers to the Google Chromecast ecosystem, you can get the $35 Chromecast Audio for $15.

You can also use Siri to run Google Assistant commands in a smart home.

Google Assistant is available on the App Store.

In the USA you can also get bundles like a free Google Home Hub with each Pixel 3 phone, but after all Black Friday originates in the United States and it is a bigger deal there than anywhere else in the world. You will automatically see a card prompting you to add an "Ok Google" Siri Shortcut. This will make it easier for iOS users to ask Google questions while being completely hands free.

You Can Now Use ‘Hey Siri’ to Trigger Google Assistant Using Siri Shortcuts

If you wanted the Google Assistant, you'd first need to open the Assistant app, and then say "Hey Google" or type in a command.

Google Assistant's adoption of Siri shortcuts is simply the latest evidence of what we already knew: that shortcuts is a game changer for Siri. Google has made a decision to take advantage to this, by enabling it's Assistant to launch via Siri Shortcuts.

Well, to use this feature on your iOS device, update to the latest version of Assistant for iOS and you can start using it right away, What do you think about this new feature? If you've turned on Siri support from the lock screen, your iPhone or iPad needn't be unlocked or the screen even on for that to work. This potentially can bring more Google searches to iOS users.

With Google's launch of complex Routines for the Assistant earlier this year, it's a shortcut into controlling your whole smart home, too.
