Google has noticed that users do not interact with Assistant on smartphones only through voice  (as the company would like), but mostly with their own fingers, as with normal apps. So here comes a nice redesign of the Google assistant for Android and iOS, in order to make this combination voice-touch more pleasant and simple.

The new design should, in fact, combine the best of both worlds, allowing you to start everything with the voice, and then scroll images, press buttons and interact with other elements that the assistant will present, with the touch of a finger.

We, therefore, have larger elements, which offer a better glance, and new controls to interact with these elements: you can adjust lights, volume and more with a simple touch on the corresponding slider. The same conversation with the assistant can be easily changed by pressing a finger, to add a comma to a message or to change a word that has not been correctly interpreted.

Developers and leading brands have access to new elements, such as thumbnails, enlarged images or GIFs, to enrich their content, as done by  StarbucksFood Network and FitStar.

On Android it is also easier to access the summary of your day: just open the assistant and swipe up to get personalized information based on the time and your interactions with Assistant.

Finally, Actions on Google become more appealing to developers, as they can now offer subscriptions and other paid services through in-app purchases. We speak of digital services, not physical since the latter was already available previously. Something tells us, however, that it will take some time before we see the fruits on our side.
