It no longer matters if you use the command “Hey, Siri” or “OK, Google” to find answers to questions, to get directions or to play your favorite music. Now, you don’t have to rely on having separate devices (or commands) to do any of these tasks.

Yep, iPhone updated the iOS version of Google Assistant to support Siri shortcuts.

What does this mean?

Now you can set up your Apple device to recognize “OK Google” as a command. So, for example, to ask a question it would look something like this:

You start with the usual “Hey Siri” but now you can use “OK Google” to complete the rest:

“Hey, Siri; OK Google, what home networking device would help me get me better WiFi?”

This means that eventually, you can use your iPhone to control your Google Assistant and other smart devices in your home.

How to Set up Siri Shortcuts for Google Assistant

First, make sure that your iPhone is running iOS 12 or higher. Then, download the latest version of Google Assistant onto your iPhone.

Here’s how to get everything set up in three steps:

  1. Open the Google Assistant app and tap the button in the bottom right.
  2. The app will ask you if you want to add “OK Google” to Siri. Tap “Add to Siri.”
  3. Record your phrase: “OK Google,” or another phrase that you will remember.

Once you record the phrase, then you will be able to use Siri to control Google Assistant.
