The Google Assistant is the company’s system that allows you to work with voice commands, in the same way as Cortana or Alexa. In the months, we have seen how the Assistant came to more and more applications. The Assistant even came to Allo, the application failed (closed next month) of Google instant messaging, which was one of its main features.
“The recipients of a message will only see the suggestions of the Assistant when their correspondent decides to send them to them.”
But Google does not give up taking the Wizard to an instant messaging service. Therefore, the Google Assistant will arrive at Android Messages in the coming months, which is the default instant messaging app on phones that have an Android operating system, in the same way as Messages on iOS.
In the Messages, the Assistant will show suggestions automatically when you are talking with someone about movies, restaurants and weather. These are slightly limited initial features, but Google plans to expand the Messaging Wizard capabilities over time.
One of the peculiarities of the system is that these suggestions are generated on the phone and not on Google servers.
This is because the company, which is aware of all current concerns about privacy, does not want to analyze private conversations on its servers. This would explain why the suggestions are, at the moment, so limited, since they are processed completely on the phone itself.
