Google is launching new “shortcuts” for assistant on Android, similar to Samsung’s Bixby routines and iPhone’s Siri shortcuts. This feature will allow users to set in app behavior and associate it with custom voice commands. For example, if they like, they can enable the & quot; new tweet & quot; option in the twitter app, and then say “Hey, Google, new tweet” or any other keyword they like to tweet directly with assistant. < / P > < p > just like Siri shortcuts on the iPhone, Google also offers shortcuts to apps that users often use. There is also a & quot; your shortcut & quot; tab, where you can view all the custom shortcuts. < / P > < p > at present, the biggest limitation of shortcuts is that it does not allow people to concatenate a series of commands, and they are limited to the operation within the application program. In addition, in its current form, shortcuts can’t do anything inside an application; they can only let users access specific screens within them. For example, users cannot set up a shortcut in Google assistant to search for specific keywords on instagram, although you can use it to open the discovery tab. Developers also need to update their applications to take advantage of shortcuts. Google said the proposed media negotiation rules would put its free services in Australia at “risk”
