Upon how Google Assistant vast skill keeps increasing on daily basis, only a chunk of people have admitted not to make use of the app but Google added one more solid reason for them to reconsider that decision as Assistant can now read and reply WhatsApp, Telegram and Slack messages.
This feature are available on Messages and Hangouts apps for sometimes but introducing it to large user base apps could really be a big deal for a lot of people.
The feature simply goes this way, a user receives a message on WhatsApp/Telegram/Slack, and Google Assistant will read the message loud and the user is required to reply to the message via dictation.
If you want to try the feature, simply start with the command “read my messages“. When Google Assistant has been given permission to read messages, it pops out the latest messages and starts reading it, and thereafter, gives the listener an option to reply the message as it later disappears.
For now, the feature is only available to people who base in U.S and we hope to see it come to Nigeria our country as soon as possible.
