The most common thing we do with our phones is use them to communicate and the Google assistant is a great help here. Sure you can request to see your new messages, but you can modify that command by adding the name of the person you'd like to see messages from show me my messages from madeleine the good thing about that request is that it brings up messages from all your messaging apps at the same time time and you can instantly reply yes oh great you found it the same goes for the gmail app as you can ask using modifiers like show me my email from three days ago or from a specific person or even use things like a attachment of a specific person show me my email from brian show me my email with attachments show me my email with attachments from brian google duo calls and phone calls in general can be made with the google assistant as it you can access your contact list with a command, however, perhaps the

best

feature of calls is that you can just call a business by the business name if it's local to you and you don't have to know the phone number call pizza google also has great integration with their calendar app and you have to set the default calendar that it's going to use use most of the time to use commands like create appointment; however there are more modifiers you can use like adding the date and time and of course you can ask about events but again you can modify and request different time frames with your calendar request but you can be very specific and ask things based on their name, so for me, whenever I meet someone, I'll put them in the name of the calendar entry, so if I ask for my calendar events named meeting, I'll get all of those.
the best tips and tricks with google assistant
A calendar entry is usually something you create to bring a few people together, while a reminder is usually more personal, one of the things I've found so powerful with reminders. is that I can do exactly the same things as my calendar entries, in that I can enter dates and times to be reminded and I can also request that my reminder list be searched, this has been very helpful for me to manage the subscription services and to make sure I cancel them before the subscription payment date as I can do a search for things like the word cancel show me my reminders called cancel I've been talking a lot about the proprietary apps that Google builds for their operating system android. but it doesn't all have to be Android and it doesn't all have to be the apps that Google has made, in fact, there's a fairly recent Google assistant feature called shortcuts that you can find through Google assistants. settings or even through the google home app if you have open assistant settings installed however my favorite way to get there is to just say assistant shortcuts once you're in that setting you'll find a ton of apps in the list and probably in the In addition to these are some of the most recent applications that you have entered on your phone.
The good thing is that if you have the settings configured correctly, the google assistant will know what you have done in those apps and it will show a series of shortcuts that you can instantly create for the things you have done recently if you scroll down you will find the list full of apps that the google assistant can help you with and you can tap to enter and explore some of the shortcuts that might all of these shortcuts can have the words associated with them modified to whatever makes sense to you so instead than me saying twitter messages, i can say tweeter and monkey man if that makes more sense to me. obviously many of you who might be trying this right now are going to wait I don't have any apps available in the shortcuts tab and that's because you need to look in your google assistant settings for the section called your apps make sure that I'm giving the assistant the permissions it needs to create these shortcuts for you, many of you who have an iPhone are probably feeling a little left out right now, but you don't have to feel that way, you can use the Google assistant in general at through the app and that works but these are the two ways to get google to work for you on ios when i open the google assistant app i can request something i normally do and when i do that siri and your app shortcuts learn from what i have done if you don't have the Shortcuts app you can search for it in the apple app store or you can search for it on your ios device once you have the app make sure within the settings of the google assistant app that you allow siri and shortcuts learn this will mean when you go back into shortcuts after you have used the google assistant , one of your suggested actions may become what you just said, there is another way to enter whatever you want into google assistant using siri or shortcuts when you choose action within shortcuts like ask google then you will get a space to write any question you want to ask, except it doesn't have to be a question and can really be anything, this includes custom routines you created in the Google Assistant as well as more complex commands like playing music through many speakers or control groups of smart home devices, even better than that is the fact that you can put two or three commands on the asis Try Google via a single shortcut with weight commands in the middle. to interrupt the run and whatever you name the shortcut is what you can tell siri to run all of this now if you need more details on how to set all of that up there is a link to a video to connect siri and google home together and take advantage of the Max those two, but let's get back to more detailed commands with the google assistant as many people don't know that you can control almost all of your basic phone functions with your voice, this includes turning bluetooth on and off or do not disturb mode and the flashlight plus wi-fi can actually be turned on and off and you can access any of the settings by asking for things like wi-fi settings or bluetooth settings, in fact most settings on your phone can be turned on instantly by requesting those great features and I can access location settings which is great but I think the most important thing is that we can use location n that i am with the google assistant if i ask the google assistant where i am it will bring up my location and then there is always a quick tap command to share my location in fact many of you will be able to say share my location though to lately, This has been a struggle for me, the biggest feature in my mind is that when I arrive at a place I often want to be reminded of something and what I have personally done is when I arrive at the grocery store that I want. being reminded to look at my shopping list because i am often blinded by light and follow anything that catches my eye so i will ask for a reminder when i get to a certain place and the really cool thing about this is i can play at work or at home and get a reminder when I get there, but I can also set a location and then enter an address. here, if you add your most frequent locations, they become something you can refer to in your google assistant commands, so when I say create a reminder for when you get to the best grocery store, all the information is already filled in because i have saved best gro cery store in my list of places create a reminder called check shopping list when i get to the best grocery store the most common place you will come to will be your house because you cant go anywhere else without going to home eventually unless you've done something terrible and that's your problem but that location has been set up on your phone if you go into your places section and this means you can use it in a specialized routine if you head to the routine section Google Assistant Settings Many of you will find Home Routines available both when you leave the house and when you arrive home.
These are automatic routines and will run based on the presence of your phone as long as you enable all the correct settings for it. make sure you have installed the google home app and are using the same google account as your google assistant then if you tap on settings you should see a feature for current detection if you haven't turned on edit it before thathave a chance here and the same is true if you go into routines and play one of those routines at home or away if they are there once you have started the process you will be able to add other smart home devices in both routines to automatically turn them on or off as per you enter or leave your home.
This can set up your home just the way you want it before you walk in the door, and it's an incredibly powerful feature of both Google Home and the Google Assistant. working together of course that brings us to routines in general which is one of the most powerful features with google assistant to get to your list of routines you can tell google assistant for those of you who use google home So this list is going to be a little different and that's because it's for the Google Assistant, which encompasses more than just your smart home devices;
At the bottom, you'll see the shortcuts for those apps we just talked about a moment ago. and you can make edits in this list to the ones at the top many people won't have seen these suggested new routines that Google is pre-creating for you to help you with your day of course you can take advantage of any routine to edit but many People overlook the fact that they can add multiple launchers to each routine, which means you don't have to remember the exact statement that works to start your routine, since you can add multiple versions that are very similar to you.
You can also add a second start like the time or sunrise or sunset to each routine so it runs every day or multiple times a week at whatever times you want without having to remember anything at all. actions and are guided by the basic sets of things that Google shows we can do, for example you can play and control media which means you can start things like music or the radio on your phone however there are some things that to do when you make a choice like that, which includes tapping the words again to bring up options with that action for music, we can add things like genre or artist or a playlist that we have within our default music service, of course we could add things like please listen to music from other services by adding the words spotify or apple music to the end of that statement, as long as those accounts have been connected to our google assistant, which we can find out by pressing settings music on that same page if that's not enough then you can say on specific speakers or a group of speakers too so your s commands can be quite long within any text box you have access to.
That's because anything you discovered today that you could tell the Google Assistant you can write right here and have it happen as part of a routine. This is pretty much the pinnacle of Google Assistant because it allows for endless opportunities some of those opportunities i In the second part of our series, I'm going to give you Google Assistant
