Whatspp for Android

has announced that Google Assistant will now make voice calls and video calls through the Android app.

While voice calls simply go through the carrier’s network, video calls automatically go through Duo or even Hangouts.

Google Assistant can send text messages through WhatsApp. This comes in handy if you want a message you intend to send encrypted. However, the recipient of that message must own a WhatsApp number.

The announcement from Google didn’t come with a lot of details probably owing to the fact that the new WhatsApp integrations may still be slowly rolling out to Android phones.
