Pixel power! 42 advanced Assistant actions for any Pixel phone


Google Assistant’s got plenty of tucked away tricks for anyone using Android. But you? You own one of Google’s own Pixel phones, you magnificent knobby-kneed land mammal. You’ve got the best, most Googley experience available anywhere on Android. And that means you’ve got some extra-spectacular next-level voice commands at your disposal and just waiting to be used.
