Furthermore, Google confirmed the launch of Nokia, TCL, Xiaomi, and LG Phones with assistant buttons after following Samsung's Bixby assistant.

Google Assistant will also be coming to Google's default texting application, Android Messages. Google says this all happens on-device too, instead of in the cloud. The company expects adding new features to smooth the process of bringing up assistant features, which were few taps away.

The company has claimed that the messaging platform will soon get its smart assistant for further enhancing your conversations.

Users can also change the language on Google Assistant on the fly with the command: "Ok Google, talk to me in language ".

The feature will be available for users around the world but offered only in English to start.

Those of you anxious about Google reading your personal messages should rest easy - the company says the content of your conversations is never sent to Assistant, only the entity listed on the chip you clicked.

The feature is expected to be rolled out "over the coming months" to Android phones. At MWC 2019, Google is announcing more new ways that people can utilize Google Assistant, and more new features that will encourage them to rely more on Assistant. Google said that only the information on the suggestion chips is sent to Assistant once a user clicks on the chip. Select one of these and you'll get some answers that you can share back in the chat. Nonetheless, the first device to come with a dedicated button probably will be the LG G8 ThinQ.

Google is also trying to make the feature more consistent across devices, with a single press launching it, a double press opening up the info feed, and a long press launching its walkie-talkie mode.

Messages is Google's latest attempt at building a text messaging app that users love. The search giant has also brought multilingual support for additional languages to make the Assistant capable of being a useful artificial intelligence (AI) model for a large number of mobile users.
