With Google I / O 2019 around the corner, 9to5Google noted a new Chromium code change that indicates that the Google Assistant is going to Google Chrome on Android.
According to the code change, Google will run a demo of what & # 39; Autofill Assistant & # 39; during the upcoming developer conference. is called. Some pieces of code are even labeled triggerGoogleIOStuff, which lends extra credibility to Google and shows the function during a demo on stage.
As for the demo, the code cobbles together an example from Google Assistant knowing that you have an upcoming trip to Chicago. Chrome then displays an Assistant card based on what the virtual assistant knows about your journey.
From there, the card offers a rental car through National Car Rental. We do not know when exactly the map will pop up, although some details point to certain websites that trigger Assistant. For example, if you navigate to the National Car Rental website, an Assistant card may be displayed with a suggestion for a booking based on where you are going.
As the name implies, the Autofill Assistant uses your travel information to automatically fill in empty fields and receives payment information from maps stored in Chrome. For example, the assistant can enter the pick-up and delivery locations of your car rental. You can also go to Assistant and change all this information.
The good news is that Autofill Assistant does not only work with car rental – 9to5Google also noted that the feature worked with movie ticket purchases. Whether we will see the feature work with other purchases is everyone's guess, although we will probably learn more during Google I / O 2019.
