Google is phasing out the old Voice Search in favor of Assistant

Google is phasing out the old Voice Search in favor of Assistant The familiar microphone icon in Google's search bar might soon be a thing of the past, according to some recent changes spotted by 9 to 5 Google. On some phones, Google's old-school "Voice Search," with the prompt "Say 'Hey Google,'" has been replaced by the four-dot Assistant logo and the term "Ask your Assistant." As a reminder, that's just like the one at the bottom of Google's Pixel launcher. It still opens the same interface as before, but the search is now performed by Assistant and displays the results in a slide-up card.

Buying individual apps in the Google Play marketplace might soon become a thing of the past. Fast-forward to late last week, and Quinn might have received some more information, according to XDA. He received a screenshot from a friend who was answering a survey from Google .

According to 9to5 Google , recent versions of the Google app on Android includes a new, hidden code that lets users add their custom hotword for waking up So instead of having to use these hotwords, you will soon be able to setup your own, custom hotword for waking up Assistant.

Google might be about to do pair up two mobile screen-related features, "Edit & Share screenshots" and the AI-powered "What's on my Screen," according to some APK digging by 9 to 5 Google. A new feature called "Smart Screenshots," tucked into the latest version of the Google 10.61 app, brings up an updated toolbar when you take a screenshot. As before, you get edit, share and the option to use your favorite app to send the shot, but there's a new option with the latest version: Lens.

By selecting Lens, you can perform a search, do optical character recognition (OCR) or find visually similar items. The current annotating, cropping and sharing editing tools will likely remain as they are. It's not yet clear whether the new Lens function will work for all screenshots or just those taken in Google Search. However, it seems likely that it will eventually become a replacement for screen search, in much the same way that Lens has taken over from other Google Assistant functions.
