The new Google Assistant boosts on the Google Pixel handsets while the Google Home has more personality that the old regular Google Search. It is conversational and has some Easter eggs that are hiding within.

Fortunately, the Google Assistant now features a few new fantastic tricks up its sleeves. With the upcoming Harry Potter movie that is due on 18th November, the Assistant has added extra Hogwarts style voice commands that allow you to control your handset like magic.

DID YOU KNOW: Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

You should try them out by saying ‘OK Google’ and the cast the following voice commands:

  • Nox – Turn the flashlight off
  • Lumos – Turn on your smartphone’s flashlight
  • Silencio – Mute notifications and ringtones

These commands from the J.K. Wizarding Words works even for those using older devices that have Google Now instead of the Google Assistant.
