Google Assistant won't just be helpful for talking to Google itself: It'll tap into a wide array of services, too. The search giant has revealed that it's working on a "comprehensive way" for third parties to tap into the AI-powered, conversation-oriented helper. You'll have to wait to hear more about it in the "coming months," but there are already some big partners lined up, like OpenTable, Spotify and Uber. On stage at its annual I/O developer conference, Google also said that it expects developers to trivia challenges and other games. In short: As with Facebook Messenger and Skype, you may find yourself chatting up all kinds of services in the near future.
