Google Assistant gets the ability to read messages on WhatsApp, Telegram and more

By  | 

We have seen that Google Assistant has almost become an essential part of our homes. This is because we regularly use smart speakers such as Google Home which are powered by Google’s Assistant as well. Now, there are a lot of things that the Google Assistant could already do to make our lives better.

A new feature has now been added to the Google Assistant which is very useful as well. This feature is the ability for your Assistant to read your messages from WhatsApp, Telegram and other apps and then dictate them to you. This means that you do not have to look at your screens in order to read your messages.

On top of that, you will also be able to dictate your replies and the Google Assistant will send them as a text reply on your behalf. The only thing that you need to note is that the Google Assistant will not be able to read if the messages is a media file such as image, video or audio.

Also, note that if the Google Assistant reads your messages and dictates them to you, it will be termed as a “read” message. In applications such as WhatsApp and others, this will show as a “blue tick” which means that the receiver has seen and read the message.

All you have to do is tell Google Assistant to “read my messages” and it will read all the messages that you have received. This applies for third-party applications such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Slack and other such apps as well.

It is known that Google Assistant was able to read your text messages but the same was not available for messages from third-party applications. Since that is also available now, we can say that Google Assistant is one step closer to what could be a perfect replacement for a personal assistant.
