Google Local Services

Google Assistant can now give you local results for service providers like electricians, plumbers, house cleaners and other local services you might need in your home or business. Google said this is rolling out to the Google Assistant, Google Home, etc over the coming week.

Here is how it looks like in the Google Assistant app but obviously, if you do it over voice search, Google will just talk to you and probably let you call the service provider from your device.

Google Assistant Local Results

Google said they give you results first from service providers "that have been prescreened by Google and companies like HomeAdvisor and Porch so you can feel confident they're ready to take on the job." If there are none, Google will give you providers they did not prescreen.
