Google Assistant is one of the smartest and feature-rich digital assistants out there. It was introduced last year and has now been made available on every Android device running Marshmallow or higher. While there are a lot of commands to help you get things done, many of them are quite long and can prove to be annoying if you use any of them on a regular basis.
This is where Google Assistant’s custom shortcuts come into the picture. It is the functionality which allows you to set shortcuts for getting those things done quickly and without any need of repeating the whole command each time. So here is the tutorial on how you can create Google Assistant shortcuts.
So without further ado, let’s get started.
Steps to create Google Assistant shortcuts:
Step 1: Launch Google Assistant either by tapping and holding the home button or by simply saying, “Ok Google.”
Step 2: Tap the Blue icon on the top right corner and go to Your Stuff section. Scroll down the list until you see Shortcuts and then, tap See All option.
Step 3: Here you will see a list of popular shortcuts created by default. Tap the + icon at the bottom right corner to start creating a new one.
Step 4: This will show you an interface where you need to enter what is your shortcut and what it should do. Tap Save to save your shortcut.
So this way, you can create Google Assistant shortcuts with ease and anytime you want. Just keep in mind that whatever you decide to be your shortcut will need to be spoken after “Ok Google.” As for what Assistant does for that shortcut, it should be a valid Assistant command which means it should not be about something that it does not support.
