"Like saying 'Goodnight Google' to Siri could open Assistant and run a routine like turning off all your lights and locking the door," added the report.

Users can already add an Assistant widget on the iPhone screens and with the new feature, users could cross stream and use Siri to connect to Google Assistant.

The new shortcuts integration is available as part of the updated version of Assistant for iOS.

Earlier in May, Microsoft Cortana and Amazon Alexa performed the first ever integration of two intelligent assistants at the Build 2018 developers' conference held in Seattle.

Their integration worked with the command: "Alexa, open Cortana" and while Alexa accepted personal requests, Cortana helped with business needs.
