New Google Assistant directory helps you discover actions

With Google Assistant heading a breath-taking number of devices this year, the search giant is highlighting another key strength: This technology now supports over one million actions, which are essentially things the Assistant can do.

Most of the Assistant-exclusive functions one would imagine when using voice commands from Android Auto have already been working, and it even used the Google Assistant animation previously. "It's been an exciting year to see the platform expand to new languages and devices and to see what [third-party developers have] created". Some cars can even use Assistant on the phone or inside the home to lock and unlock doors, check fuel levels, and more.

The consolidated database is excellent for people new to the Google Assistant ecosystem and want to skim through its abilities.

"And soon, you'll be able to reserve a parking space with SpotHero or order your favorite handcrafted drink or food from Starbucks-all from the road", Huffman wrote. All in all, today there are more than a million Actions you can take with your Assistant. You can also explore them with your Assistant on your Android phone or iPhone -just go to your Assistant, select the blue icon in the corner and dive in.
