Google assistant is a highly powerful tool and it does a lot of things. Google has started tightening the screw and introducing deeply tied in-app actions to Google assistant. If you want to browse and add third party app shortcuts to Google assistant, then follow the below steps.
Adding Shortcuts To Google Assistant
- As a first step, you need to open the Google app, then click on more menu on the bottom bar. From here you need to navigate to Settings>Google Assistant.
- Here click on the services tab and open shortcuts.
- Here on the next screen, it will show you all the third-party application shortcuts that Google Assistant supports. Now tap on ‘+’ to add your favourite shortcuts and then it will show you a confirmation on Google assistant.
- Here, it will show all the third-party app shortcuts under the tab ‘Your Shortcuts’.
- For example, you can Twitter Messages as a shortcut keyword for getting the Messages from Twitter.
- Now you are done with the setup, you can go ahead and say “ Hey Google, Twitter Messages ”, and it will bring you the messages from your Twitter.
- The best thing is you don’t actually have to say the exact phrase, but you can say something closer to the original command and Google assistant will process it.
That is how you can set up a command or add shortcuts to Google assistant.
