Google Assistant can now connect you with local home services

Starting today, Google Assistant can help you find local services, like an electrician or handyman. All you have to do is say “OK Google” to Assistant on your phone or Google Home, followed by a prompt to find the particular service you’re interested in.
In the below example, saying “OK Google, find me a plumber” starts Assistant’s hunt, displaying some follow-up questions to hone in exactly the type of service you need, like repairing a faucet or installing a garbage disposal. From there, Assistant asks if you’d like a call from a service, or if you’d like to browse options in your area.

The feature will be rolling out in the US over the next week. Google says Assistant will recommend businesses that have been pre-screened by Google, Home Advisor, and other companies, so there’s some level of comfort knowing you’re hiring workers in good standing. If you live in a city that doesn’t have pre-screened businesses, Assistant will still recommend nearby results.
