Google Assistant can now connect you with local home services”

Also, in many United States cities, Google Assistant will suggest providers that have been prescreened by Google and other companies like HomeAdvisor and Porch, so whenever you get a list of results from the Assistant, you can be sure they're the best for the job. Well, thanks to a sweet update for Google Assistant, the service can now help you pinpoint the ideal helper.

Saying something like, "Hey Google, I need a plumber", will soon help you clarify your problem, pull up results for local services that can help you out of your jam and dial them up for you. Then, the Assistant will ask you a few questions and to narrow down the results and it will eventually get you a list of some local options nearby. In this case, you might have to unclog a drain, install a garbage disposal, etc.

If everything looks good to you, you can directly call the business and schedule your service.

The company has partnered with home improvement aggregators HomeAdvisor and Porch to prescreen all service providers that Assistant surfaces.

This feature will be rolling out "over the coming week".
