It's only been a few weeks since Google brought the wizard to Google Maps to help you respond to messages, play music, and more. This feature was first introduced in English and will soon be introduced in all Assistant phone languages. In addition, Google today announced that the wizard will come in the coming months to Android Messages, the default app for text messages on the mobile operating system of Google.
If you remember Allo, Google's last fancy messaging app, then a lot of that sounds familiar. For Allo, assistantship support was one of the flagging features. The difference is that Google used the wizard primarily as an extra layer of smart news, while in Allo you could have complete conversations with a special assistant bot.
In messages, the assistant automatically displays suggestion chips when talking to someone about movies, restaurants, and the weather. This is a pretty limited set of features for the moment, though Google tells us it's planning an extension over time.
The important thing here is that the suggestions are generated on your phone (and therefore possibly the model of machine learning is limited.) Also, since it has to run locally). Google is well aware that people do not want the company to receive information about their private text chats. Of course, once you tap on any of the wizard's suggestions, Google knows that you're talking about a particular topic, even if the conversation's content itself is never sent to Google's servers. The person you are talking to will only see the additional information if you push it to yourself.
