Google is Reportedly Replacing Voice Search on Android With Google Assistant
Google’s voice search button on Android is being replaced with Google Assistant.
This includes the voice search shortcut triggered by “OK Google,” the microphone button on the home screen widget, and the microphone button within the Google app itself.
In addition to conducting web searches, the voice search button on Android could also be used to perform actions such as calls, texts, emails, and music.
Now, with the integration of Google Assistant, all previous voice search shortcuts can now be used to do more advanced things like control smart home devices and perform actions with third-party apps.
Android Police reports that this has been verified…
