Google’s proprietary voice assistant is constantly improving. For example, at the end of September, the helper interface became more intuitive on the Pixel 3 XL. Then users noticed the move of the greeting with the offer of help, while the Google Plus icons and keyboards swapped. Now the turn came directly to the functionality. The application has learned to donate money to charities.
For donations, it is sufficient to articulate the desired command, according to 9to5google. To illustrate, the journalists decided to transfer $ 10 to the Committee of the red cross.
You can send funds in two steps – first, specify the name of the organization together with the amount, and then confirm the operation. If you do not announce the name of the Fund, Assistant will clarify it.
After some time after confirmation we will receive a notification.
To send donations, you need to activate Google Assistant Payments. The feature works on Android smartphones and Google Home. The same applies to the brand new Home Hub, but in this case you will still have to complete the operation on your smartphone.
Google Assistant update for Android
So far, the feature is only available for US residents. We hope that in the near future the geography of Google Assistant capabilities will expand significantly.
Recall that the update Assistant Google developers worked back in December. At that time, insiders told about changes in the appearance of the platform on devices with an elongated display — that is, with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and above.
For more convenience, programmers have made the assistant menu shorter, in addition, all the useful buttons moved down. Thanks to this, fans of Android smartphones will no longer have to reach into different angles or take the device in the other hand. With all the tasks to cope with the thumb.
