The Google Assistant app on iOS is now backed with Siri shortcut to make the use of Assistant more convenient for iOS users. “We added support for Siri Shortcuts to make it even easier to access your Assistant,” read the app description on Apple’s App Store. 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, The Verge reported on Tuesday.

“Like saying ‘Goodnight Google’ to Siri could open Assistant and run a routine like turning off all your lights and locking the door,” added the report.

The new shortcuts integration is available as part of the updated version of Assistant for iOS. Earlier in May, Microsoft Cortana and Amazon Alexa performed the first-ever integration of two intelligent assistants at the “Build 2018” developers’ conference held in Seattle.
