Google Assistant World Cup special queries for schedules, stats, and news


Google Assistant makes it really easy to do simple things, from setting up reminders, to taking notes, getting trivia, jokes and staying up to date with the latest events. The World Cup is one of the huge event currently underway in Russia. Though it’s been a few days I’v used it from the first day to keep up with every game and statistics. Here are some of the voice commands you can try out for yourself. Google assistant world cup special queries give answers with voice feedback rather than list of results from the google search.

So here we go:

2018 World Cup (matches)

This keyword “world cup games today” provides an tabbed layout result which turns into a full screen display for matches, news, results, standings, and player stats. It also shows the brackets layout for the knockout stages. Which obviously aren’t filled yet but soon will be.

Alternative keywords like “2018 world cup“, “world cup 2018” put other apps at the beginning of the tabled layout from google. So we picked the one that listed the tabbed layout as the first result.
