Google Assistant has been around for a while, and one of the things it was missing was a comprehensive, dedicated directory on the web that tells you what it can do. Not anymore.
Complete list of Google Assistant features now on a dedicated webpage
To see if the Assistant supports a particular product, you should have a device with the Assistant enabled, go to the slightly Hidden Explore section which is accessible from the blue envelope icon at the top right of the wizard screen, and at that point you can either search for a specific keyword or use the trends and news sections to discover its new features. The experience was late and few users could approach the page, given the difficulty of reaching it. Amazon has made things a lot easier with Alexa, letting you search for all of its abilities on their official site.
Following in Alexa’s footsteps, Google has created a consolidated database that lists all Assistant functions on a dedicated page on the Google Assistant website. They are neatly divided into categories and subcategories ranging from art and lifestyle, food and drink, local, travel and weather and much more. You can also search for a specific order, using the included search option.
The consolidated database is great for people new to the Google Assistant ecosystem and wanting to browse its capabilities. Seasoned users can also benefit as it allows them to refine their experience by allowing them to explore more commands. One of the most notable features of the new database, however, is the fact that it indicates on which device the command can be issued. You can also share a specific function using the included button, letting your friends know how to better control their smart devices.
