Access to Google Workspace core services from Google Assistant

What’s changing

Over the next few weeks, we’ll begin making access to Google Workspace services from Google Assistant generally available to any customers with the “Search and Assistant” additional service enabled. This was previously available in beta.

Who’s impacted

Admins and end users

Why you’d use it

This will allow your users to more seamlessly get things done using just their voice—from asking what’s on their Calendar to joining meetings and sending emails on the go. Google Assistant will respond to voice commands for certain Google Calendar and Gmail functions and:
  • Let you know when your next meeting is
  • Create, cancel or reschedule a Calendar event
  • Send a note to event attendees via email
  • Dial into a meeting
  • Email a contact

Additional details

At launch, this service will initially only be available in English on personal mobile devices. Support for access on Nest smart speakers and smart displays is still in beta (you can sign up to participate).
