This button will do more than just summoning the Google Assitant by a tap. By double tapping, the button, the new feature of a visual snapshot with information will appear which will be tailored according to your location and the time of the day. To fetch the Google Assistant for dictating which comes handy at the time of texting, a long press of the button will do that work.
