Google Assistant finally gets a web directory detailing all of its commands, apps, and services

An awful lot of us either bought or received a Google Home or Home Mini over Christmas, which is great, but now that you have one of these new-fangled smart speakers, what can you do with them? Up until today, finding out what Google Assistant can go hasn’t been easy. Thankfully, Google has realized this and has now posted a web directory consisting of not only everything that Google Assistant can do, but also the apps and services it is compatible with. 

The directory covers everything to do with Google Assistant, with categories and sub-categories ranging from Art & Lifestyle to Home Control or Travel & Transportation. It isn’t just a list of commands though, it also contains every app and service that is compatible with Google Assistant. Much like Amazon’s Skill’s page for Alexa, you can now troll through the web directory to use the Google Assistant to its full potential. No longer do you have to guess which command or service to use to get your required result.

It isn’t an absolutely perfect list. In an ideal world, the directory would let you filter services depending on your chosen device and perhaps provide a web graphical interface to manage your devices with Google Assistant. But perhaps that’s something for the future. In the meantime, there are a lot of options to go through in this directory. You can navigate to the web directory by simply driving your browser to assistant.google.com/explore

What is your new favorite command or service to use with your Google Assistant device?
