Trigger Google Assistant Via ‘Hey Siri’ Using This Siri Shortcut

Adjust Comment Print

A new update to Google Assistant for iOS adds support for Siri Shortcuts, so you can actually get some decent voice assistant action on your iPhone.

How does Siri Shortcuts work with the Google Assistant? You'll still need to say "Hey Siri, Okay Google", but it nonetheless represents a big step forward.

The Verge reports that you can now use the usual "OK Google" and "Hey Google" phrases to Siri, and from there the Google Assistant can be used just like on an Android device. Google Assistant will then pop up ready to accept your commands. Saying "Hey Siri, OK Google" while your phone is locked will result in Siri telling you to unlock your iPhone to do that.

Google Assistant is unarguably smarter and more feature rich than Siri but it always felt crippled on an iPhone due to various platform limitations. You could instead use something shorter and easier to say as well.

To get started, make sure you are on the latest version of the Google Assistant iOS app.
