Donating money to a charity or nonprofit organization just got easier for people who use Google Assistant. The voice-activated program now responds to commands to “donate to a charity” or to “make a donation.” Google launched the feature last month, according to 9to5Google.
Once Google Assistant receives the command to make a donation, the user can name the organization of their choice and the amount of their gift. Google prompts the user to finalize the donation and the money is then routed to Network for Good, a nonprofit that processes donations for charities.
Google Assistant can only make donations if its payments feature is enabled by the user. 9to5Google reported that the new command works on several Android and Google Home speakers.
Google Assistant isn’t the only AI-powered virtual assistant capable of making donations. Amazon gave its Alexa app the same feature in April 2018.
Now that both Amazon and Google have streamlined the donation process, supporting your favorite charities is only a voice command away.
