Now Siri will let you speak to the Google Assistant

You Can Now Use ‘Hey Siri’ to Trigger Google Assistant Using Siri Shortcuts

"Hey Siri, you suck" could be your wake word for Google Assistant to take over the strain, if you so wished.

The "OK Google" command is used to open the Google Assistant app and get it listening. Google is using every trick in the book to try and redress the balance though, and with a new update to the Google Assistant app it is using Siri Shortcuts as a way to get voice activation for Google Assistant into iOS. It's also an unbelievable platform for media, whether you want music, streaming video or an integrated TV experience. They no longer need to open the Google Assistant app to trigger the feature. Make sure you have the latest version of the Google Assistant app installed, then open it up.

Google's latest Assistant update on iOS is packing quite the integration.

The device will then ask you to record you saying "Ok Google".

Google takes a Shortcut to link Assistant and Siri

Now, with the addition of Siri Shortcuts support in the Google Assistant app, there's a workaround to that.

Android users have been able to use the "OK Google" hotword to launch Google Assistant for a while now. If you've turned on Siri support from the lock screen, your iPhone or iPad needn't be unlocked or the screen even on for that to work. The new $150 Google Home Hub is now $99, the original and customizable $130 Google Home is now $79, and the tiny $49 Google Home Mini is just $25. Tap the "Add to Siri" button and follow the instructions. However, after that you can string both Siri and Assistant instructions together to use Google's services.

You can also set up Siri Shortcuts for phrases you frequently use with Assistant, come up with a custom voice command for a single smart home action, trigger Google Assistant smart home routines inside of Siri, explains The Verge.
