Google Assistant now supports third-party apps on smartphones and smart displays.

Google Assistant has been one of the best voice assistants in the market. However, the only problem the AI faced on smart displays and android devices is that until now was no support for third-party apps. The AI could only use Google apps to perform the task and could not do it through any other app. However, at the Assistant Developers day on Thursday, Google has introduced two new exciting features for a smart display that has Google Assistant. One of them is deeper integration with third-party apps on Android, which will allow users to open and search apps and do complex tasks like playing music, starting a run, or posting something on social media accounts. 

The feature will be available now on all assistant Android phones. The best part about this feature is that it also works with 30 third-party apps on the Play store, with support for more apps to come in the future. Currently, the apps that it supports is Citi, Dunkin, Paypal, Wayfair, Wish, Uber, Yahoo! Mail, Nike Adapt, Nike Run Club, Spotify, Postmates, Grubhub, MyFitnessPal, Mint, Discord, Walmart, Etsy, Snapchat, Twitter, YouTube, Google Maps, Instagram, Twitch, and Best Buy. SO now the user can use the “Hey Google” voice command for third-party apps, like giving the command to tighten the shoes using the Nike Adapt app. 

This has opened up a lot of possibilities for this party app developers and now they could use the voice assistant feature of Google to make their apps easily accessible on the phone. The same feature will also be available on Google Smart display where you will be able to use third-party apps using the Google AI assistant. Now the users will be able to make payments through voice commands on the smart display and have also added new voices to Google assistant to make it sound natural.
