An update has been released by Google for the Google Assistant app for iOS that brings Siri Shortcut support to the app. Basically, you’ll be able to trigger the Google Assistant by saying “Hey Siri, OK Google.” This means that iOS users will be able to ask Google questions while being completely hands free. They won’t need to open the Google Assistant app to trigger the feature.
In order to set it up, make sure you go to the App Store and download the Google Assistant app and/or update your current Google Assistant app to the newest version. Next, open up the app on your iOS device, iPhone or iPad. From there, you should see a card at the top that has a button to “Add to Siri.”
The device will then ask you to record you saying “Ok Google.”
Then say, “Ok Google:”
It will ask you to confirm the recording, where you can click either the option to re-record or done:
At this point, you’re set up and good to go. All you need to do is say “Hey Siri, Ok Google.”
Here is a video recorded by Barry Schwartz testing out this feature:
