“Hey Google” now works with your Android apps

Google has confirmed that it’s assistant can now help android users get more done with third party apps. In a press release Google says:

”Opening and searching within Android apps using “Hey Google” is now available to all Assistant-enabled Android phones. This makes everyday tasks within an app much easier thanks to voice.” With assistant you can do things like “playing music, starting a run, posting on social media, ordering food, paying back a friend, hailing a ride—the list goes on and on—all with just your voice. Starting today, you can try doing more using your voice with more than 30 of the top apps on Google Play available in english globally, with more apps coming.”

This move will undoubtedly be a welcome one as it means better hands free convenience and control.
