Google Assistant can help you with all sorts of things. You can have it read the on-screen text and set up routines. Another thing it can help you with is sending audio messages. The process is easier than you might think, and it could save you some valuable time when you’re in a hurry.
How to Use Google Assistant to Send Audio Messages
If you like to use Google Assistant for just about everything, you might like sending audio messages this way. Start by saying, ¨OK, Google¨ and when you hear the sound that indicates that it’s listening, say you want to send an audio message and then say the person’s name. You can also just say you want to send an audio message and wait for Google Assistant to ask you to whom.
If you don’t specify if the audio message will be sent by SMS or WhatsApp, Google Assistant will ask you to choose. You can say which one you want to use or tap on the options Google Assistant shows you.
If you don’t see that Google Assistant has started recording, tap the mic to start. Record your message, and when you’re done, you can tap on the Send button, or you can wait for Google Assistant to send it.
By tapping on the play icon, you can listen to the message before it’s sent. If you change your mind and want to drop the audio, you can always tap on the cancel button.
Sending an audio message using Google Assistant can be helpful when you need to send a message but have your hands full. During my testing, Google Assistant misbehaved from time to time but was able to send the message.
