Google Assistant has quite a few interesting features like the option to add shortcuts, add home and work location to get instant traffic updates. There is also an option to add shared devices in Google Assistant on iPhone and iPad to ensure it provides your personal only when it recognizes your voices on these devices.
If you don’t want anyone to access your personal information through the virtual assistant, you must add shared devices. Personally, I always prefer to keep my data private and secure. Hence, I really appreciate this important feature. Let’s dive right in to know how it works!
How to Add Shared Devices in Google Assistant on iPhone and iPad
Note: Make sure your devices are connected with the same Wi-Fi network.
Step #1. Open Assistant on your device → Tap on the small circle at the top right.
Step #2. Next, you need to tap on the menu button (looks like three tiny dots.)
Step #3. Now, tap on Settings.
Step #4. Next up, tap on Shared Devices.
Step #5. Tap on the plus button at the bottom right corner.
Now, it will search for the devices. Once it has found the device, add it.
That’s all folks.
It’s your turn now
Google Assistant may not be at its very best on iOS devices due to restrictions but the voice assistant is still very handy. As far as understanding different accents and accuracy are concerned, it’s a bit better than others.
The arrival of Assistant on iOS devices has certainly put slight pressure on Siri to get out of the comfort zone. Apple’s virtual assistant may have vastly improved in recent times but it does have plenty of areas to cover up to become more reliable.
