Actions on Google is coming to Android and iOS, support for transactions included

0

Actions on Google is only available on Home devices for the time being, but that's about to change, the search giant confirmed during its I/O conference.

Google announced it would expand the availability of its voice-activated apps to the new platforms of Android and iOS. Previously, the Mountain View company promised to bring Actions on Google functionality on Pixel smartphones and within the Allo chat app.

Moreover, the search giant confirmed Actions on Google would support transactions, which will allow Android and iOS users to purchase things by voice. On top of that, Actions on Google enables users to interact with developers' apps using the phrase “Ok Google, talk to [insert name of the app].”

Once Actions on Google is fully integrated within Android and iOS, users will be able to ask the Google Assistant to play their favorite song via Spotify or Apple Music. Ordering and paying for food will be possible as well, as long as developers add support for Actions on Google for their apps.

Google didn't offer a precise ETA for the rollout of Actions on Google on Android and iOS, but it shouldn't take too long for the new features to be integrated within both platforms.
