Since it launched, Google Assistant’s amazing features have been weirdly limited for users who are signed in with G Suite accounts, however, according to new development, Google seems to be slowly fixing this.
According to the search engine giant, G Suite users can now use voice commands to perform the following Calendar and Gmail functions:
- Ask when your next meeting is
- Create, cancel, and reschedule Calendar events
- Send emails to all attendees of a meeting
- Send emails to specific contacts
- Dial into meetings
However, these new functions on Google Assistant for G Suite come with certain terms and conditions. First, these features are turned off by default and are currently still in beta. You’ll have to apply to use them. If you’re a G Suite administrator, that’s no problem; you can sign up here. But if you’re trying to access this for a work account, you might have to convince your admin to apply for your whole team.
Secondly, if you’re logged in to both a personal Google account and a work G Suite account, the Assistant will only work with one account at a time.
According to Google;
“You must switch between those accounts if you’d like to ask a question about your other account.”
Hopefully, this is the beginning of more helpful features to the virtual assistant for G Suite users.
