If there is one advantage that Google Assistant has over other AI-based software like Siri or Alexa is that it doesn’t work with just voice. A good example would be how Google Assistant has been baked into apps like Allo, where users can interact with it in other ways besides issuing voice commands.
However it seems that Google has introduced a new ability to the software, where it will now be capable of reading and interacting with regular text messages. Like we said earlier, it was baked into Allo but now it will work with more than just Allo, such as text messages. There are a variety of commands that users can use, such as “Do I have any messages?” or “Show me my last message”, and so on. The only limitation, if you can call it that, is that it can’t read notifications.
