It is now possible to call the Google Assistant through Apple AirPods. This works through a free app from the Play Store.
How to use Apple AirPods to activate Google Assistant
Apple AirPods have already been working on Android, but now it’s also possible to activate up Google Assistant by tapping one of the buttons. Of course, this is not an official support. However, via an app from the Play Store, the feature is easy to activate.
Using AirPods with Android has two distinct drawbacks. First of all, the music does not pause if you get a cap from your ear. This is true with iOS. The other drawback was that you could not activate a voice assistant. This is now being solved.
The app is called AirpodsForGA and allows to activate up Google Assistant by tapping one of the AirPods twice. This option will not always work if your smartphone is unlocked. There must be no problems with a locked smartphone.
For example, by activating Google Assistant, it is possible to pause your music or ask what the weather is like. Of course, it is still necessary to put the system language of your device into English. This can be done by going to Settings> System> Languages and Input> Languages.
