Google is bringing voice typing to KaiOS via Google Assistant

Apparently, Google expects that more than 100 million phones launched by the end of the year will have a dedicated Google Assistant button, an impressive achievement if you ask us.

To help you plan your next trip, reply popular messaging apps like Messages, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, Google Assistant was recently upgraded with some cool new features.

The Google Assistant will also be integrated in more apps, starting with Messages. Nevertheless, Assistant will work in the background and proactively surface suggestion chips when it thinks it has more details about the topics you are talking about. Google appears to be a fan of this implementation as the company has announced more manufacturers will introduce identical buttons with future smartphones. Google Assistant will be able to provide information about movies, restaurants, and weather during chats, but the feature will be available only to English users at first, rolling out gradually in the coming months. The Messages app uses on-device AI to offer suggestions relevant to the conversation; information isn't sent to the Google Assistant until the user taps on the Assistant suggestion. The only time information is sent to Assistant is if you click on the suggestion chip. According to Google, the feature allows users to translate speech to text in a "natural and convenient way".

The roll out of RCS support continues, and Google says that it is working to bring it to more people.

"Similarly, if users have a Google Home, you can broadcast a message to the device by saying, "Hey Google, broadcast that I'm on my way home".

To get things started, Google has expanded its support of Indian languages to a total of eight.

Chief among these is that Assistant is coming to Messages. The search giant has also brought multilingual support for additional languages to make the Assistant capable of being a useful artificial intelligence (AI) model for a large number of mobile users.
