Siri is great and all, but it is no match for the Google Assistant at this point in time. The Shortcut became available with Google's latest version of the Assistant app for iOS and it allows users to basically tell Siri to let Google's counterpart do her job, The Verge noticed. These are the absolute best Black Friday deals for getting started with, or expanding, your Google Assistant life. Open the Google Assistant app on your iOS device, iPhone or iPad. Apple reserves that for its "Hey Siri" launcher. No matter what size your room is, how much counter space you have in the kitchen, or what you need to control, Google Assistant is there. In my view, this is especially true when it comes to smart assistants.
That's because you can now buy the Google Home Hub for just £99 - that's £40 off the original retail price of £139 - at a number of retailers, including AO.com, Argos, John Lewis, and more. That can be as simple as launching a specific app, or as complex as a lengthy macro opening multiple apps and triggering a range of commands.

Existing travel links by plane, train and road will also be preserved beyond the Brexit transition. We are ready and willing to get behind the deal which is good for our businesses.
In the USA you can also get bundles like a free Google Home Hub with each Pixel 3 phone, but after all Black Friday originates in the United States and it is a bigger deal there than anywhere else in the world. You can now say "Hey Siri" followed by "OK Google" to trigger the assistant handsfree on your device.
If you haven't updated the Google Assistant app on the iPhone, be sure to do so in order to take advantage of the new feature. If you're leaving the house, for example, saying "Hey Google, I'm leaving" to Siri could prompt Assistant to turn off your smart lights, thermostats, and more. However, iPhone users have had to open up the Google Assistant app manually and then issue voice commands to get things done. Then you should see a card at the top that has a button to "Add to Siri". After that, the Assistant should appear as an option when you build a new shortcut.
