So you can ask Google Assistant to find you the nearest restaurant where you now are or ask her to dictate to you your schedule for that day or to open an app for you on your smartphone.

The Google Assistant is one of Google's most impressive services in a number of years, but as powerful as the AI has become in such a short amount of time, there are still some aspects that don't make any worldly sense. Fragmentation has proven to be an issue, however, with some abilities only available for Google Home users and not smartphone users, or vice versa. Anyway, this is a really handy trick, as it narrows the differences of what you can do with Google Assistant on different devices. If you have a Nexus 5 or newer device, however, you'll be able to grab it. We have seen many apps making their way to the Play store in the past like the Dialer, Google Keyboard (now Gboard), Google Assistant and more. They just announced yesterday that Google Express shopping is coming to the Google Assistant experience on the phone soon so it shows that they're working to bring things closer together. Google Home owners were able to speak a command to play something on a particular Chromecast device, but if you tried this from Allo or the built-in Assistant feature then it wouldn't work. A big example of this is when you're trying to play something on a Chromecast device.
