The Google Assistant application for Android will recognize the brands Banco do Brasil, Nubank, iFood and Rappi from this Wednesday (4). With the novelty, Brazilian users will be able to request that the assistant make bank transfers, consult the extract or even order a meal, using voice commands.
To use the new feature, just have the applications of the partner companies installed on the cell phone, be logged in to the services and follow the command pattern of the Google assistant. If you want to make a bank transfer, for example, you should say "Ok Google, transfer 50 reais to Maria at Banco do Brasil / Nubank". The app will be automatically redirected to the area responsible for the requested action.

Likewise, it will also be possible to consult bank balances, credit card bills and pay bills. For food and delivery applications, in turn, the novelty allows placing and tracking orders. The command "Ok Google, order pizza on iFood / Rappi" is among the phrases that can be said by users.
Walquiria Saad, leader of product partnerships for Google Assistant in Brazil, explained that the new resource starts with four partner companies in the areas of finance and delivery, but can expand to other segments.
"At first, we count on these four partners to put this novelty into practice, but we reinforce that it is an open technology, in which any application developer on the Android system can implement its services", he said.
