Google Assistant can now read WhatsApp, Telegram, and Slack messages out loud, and even reply to them.
Earlier, the tech giant’s voice assistant was restricted to reading SMS texts sent via the native messaging app only, but now that feature supports third-party communication apps as well.
To try this new feature, users have to activate Google Assistant on their Android phone, and say the command ‘read my messages’.
You can check if this feature works for you or not, by activating Google Assistant and commanding it to ‘read my messages’.
Google Assistant will pick messages one after the other and read it out aloud.
If you say ‘yes’ the message will be read out loud.
Once the text message is read out loud, the Assistant will ask you if you want to reply.
