Google Assistant

Google Assistant is a function that listens to your voice. It can search for information on the Internet for you, provide information about your events and start apps if you give it a command.
Google voice input is convenient for performing routine tasks by voice command. Google Assistant is able to understand more complex tasks too, however. For example, instead of saying "Weather, 17th February", you can ask this: "Hey Google, what's the weather going to be like tomorrow?"
You'll see that you can therefore control your phone with voice commands after a bit of practice.

How do I use Google Assistant?


What you need:

  • An Internet connection (via Wi-Fi or mobile data)

What questions can I ask?


The following are examples of questions Google Assistant understands and
show how you can formulate questions.

"Sing me a song!"
"Sing me a birthday song!"
