– Assistant can now help you find local services.
– This new feature has already begun rolling out in the US.
Google Assistant, Google Smart AI for mobile devices has been of really great help to mobile users, from helping learn new languages to helping with fast search on question and more. Google feels there’s need to allow the smart phone AI do more as the Google Assistant can now help you find local services, like an electrician or handyman. All you have to do is say “OK Google” to Assistant on your phone or Google Home, followed by a prompt to find the particular service you’re interested in.
From the shown example, saying “OK Google, find me a plumber” starts Assistant’s hunt, displaying some follow-up questions to hone in exactly the type of service you need, like repairing a faucet or installing a garbage disposal. From there, Assistant asks if you’d like a call from a service, or if you’d like to browse options in your area.
This new feature has already begun rolling out in the US and possible will be ,made to other countries soon enough. Google says Assistant will recommend businesses that have been pre-screened by Google, HomeAdvisor, and other companies, so there’s some level of comfort knowing you’re hiring workers in good standing. For users of Assistant AI who you live in a city that doesn’t have pre-screened businesses, Assistant will still recommend nearby results.
