Google Assistant is one of the most common virtual assistants built into modern Android smartphones - even in phones that have their own proprietary AI, like Samsung's Bixby, Google Assistant makes an appearance.

The messaging interface is also changing, allowing you to use your fingers to quickly edit messages that you've dictated, such as to add a comma or change a word. Food Network has bigger photos of its recipes, while FitStar displays images of the workouts you look up to provide a quick reference of how to execute particular exercises. Developers and brands can start putting Assistant and its custom results to work for them. The assistant will show curated information based on the time of day and your recent interactions with the Assistant when you swipe up. Google, in a blog post, mentioned all the changes that have arrived as a part of the Google Assistant makeover. While they could previously sell physical goods through their Assistant actions, they'll now also be able to sell digital goods, starting today. Additionally, with Google Sign-In users can use their voice to login and link accounts on smart speakers with the Assistant.
