Soon you will be able to send money form Google Assistant

You can now ask the Assistant to turn on your living room lights or look up an order confirmation email from Gmail, among many other tasks, all without interacting with a physical Google product like the Home speaker or Pixel. He also mentioned that they're allowing developers to cram Assistant into whatever devices they're building, and mentioned that the "Google Assistant Built In" branding should appear on these devices in the future. Although, it was said that the Assistant would not take voice commands on the iPhone like it does on Android devices, but it would help with queries instead.

It has always been a known fact that Google wants its Assistant to run on as many devices as possible.

It's also going to be much easier to add loyalty programs for a user, as Pali Bhat, VP of Payment Products at Google explains: "We're also making it easier for Android Pay users to add loyalty programs".

It will launch for more users but for now, only those who have the Google Assistant on their phones can get the update.

Now, Google is drawing upon that treasure trove to teach new tricks to its digital assistant, which debuted previous year on its Pixel phone and an internet-connected speaker called Home that is trying to mount a challenge to Amazon's Echo. Called Android Go, this software will automatically enable data-saving features and will steer users toward apps designed specifically for cheap hardware. The feature allows user to use other apps while the video continues streaming in a small window. If so, you've got a new update coming your way. At the same time, there is the perception that Google Android is not very safe, and definitely not as safe as Apple's iOS. Google maintains the feature will be smart enough so that you would auto-share only specific photos - say, of your kids - to your partner or a friend.

Samsung will open up its Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus phones to the headset (it already has a partnership with Oculus).
