A new article on Search Engine Journal says that you can now use Google Assistant on Android to open and search within apps just by using voice commands.

I think this is going to prove a very convenient addition, and it could make the workday a little easier to get through too. In the past, you couldn't interact with other Google apps when using the assistant - and it didn't work if you were using Android as your operating system anyway. Now, you can use Google Assistant to search inside any app installed on your Android phone.

"Opening and searching within Android apps using "Hey Google" is now available to all Assistant-enabled Android phones. This makes everyday tasks within an app much easier thanks to voice. For example, you can now say, "Hey Google, search cozy blankets on Etsy" and get right to what you're looking for."
Google Assistant can also trigger third-party apps to perform tasks, which could come in handy. Google says that extends to more than thirty of the top apps out there too. There are plans to add even more apps to the list, but that's going to depend on individual developers.

"Now you can do things like playing music, starting a run, posting on social media, ordering food, paying back a friend, hailing a ride--the list goes on and on--all with just your voice."
Right now, Google Assistant can be used with Facebook, Instagram, Amazon, TikTok, Spotify, Postmates, Discord, Walmart, Etsy, Snapchat, Twitter, Uber, and others. You can also use Google Assistant to perform tasks with several Google apps, such as YouTube, Gmail, Maps, and more.

Google says you can perform tasks within apps more easily by setting up custom shortcuts. So, instead of saying, "Hey Google, play my work-from-home mix on Spotify," you could simply say, "Hey Google, work day music."
