If you have Google Assistant on your Android phone, you can make it do things faster and easier with your favorite apps. Here’s how to set it up:
- Open Google Assistant by saying “Hey Google” or holding down the home button.
- If you haven’t turned on Google Assistant, it will ask you to do that.
- When you see Google Assistant on your screen, say “Assistant settings.”
- Scroll down and tap on “Shortcuts.”
- You’ll see some shortcuts it suggests based on the apps you use a lot on your phone. These will be at the top under the “Explore” tab. As you scroll down, you’ll see all the apps that work with shortcuts. Some examples are Google Maps, Chrome, News, and Photos, as well as apps like Phone, Clock, Camera, and social media, ride-sharing, shopping, fitness, and streaming apps.
- To see shortcuts for a specific app, tap on its name. Under the “All” tab, you’ll see all the things you can tell Google Assistant to do with that app. To use a shortcut, tap the “+” icon next to it. You can also make your own voice command for it in the “Your shortcuts” tab.
- If you want to get rid of a shortcut, go to Google Assistant’s Shortcuts menu, find the app’s “Your shortcuts” tab, tap the shortcut, and choose “Delete.” This helps keep your shortcuts neat and current.
Customizing Google Assistant shortcuts can make your Android phone more helpful and easier to use. Give it a try and see how it makes your apps simpler to use!
