Assistant Shortcuts for Android

By Stjin Free

Developer's Description

Note for Samsung and LG stock ROM users

Some LG or Samsung devices have a hardware button for calling assistant. However, these buttons are not compatible with this app. This is because LG and Samsung call a specific assistant instead of the default assistant. Long holding the home button will still work.

Please note! This app is not supported anymore and has been rewritten and improved as a module for my new app Cometin. Please switch to Cometin here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=host.stjin.cometin

With Assistant Shortcuts, it's possible to adjust your assistant button on your phone to a command without root!. You can, for example, view your notifications by calling your assistant.

This app makes it easy for people with disabilities to perform actions without reaching the top of the screen.

This app was developed in mind after OnePlus added the functionality of activating Google Assistant from the power button.

some manufacturers ship their phones with a heavy modified version of Android. I cannot guarantee the working of the app on those devices.
