Hey, Google, ditch Siri with a quick shortcut to the Assistant on your iPhone


Hey, Google, did you know I could bypass Siri with one click on an iPhone and go to you instead?

Apple recently upgraded its Siri Shortcuts, which let you record quick one to two-word commands to Siri create a tweet, call the wife, read aloud your daily schedule or play your favorite podcast.

One of those options Apple is the ability to record yourself saying, “Hey, Google,” in the same manner as you would do with Siri. The phone automatically goes to the Google Assistant app, (which you’ll need to have, if you haven’t already) and the Google microphone is cued, awaiting your query.
