For digging into these features, let’s have a flashback to April when we reported that Google is planning to ditch that conventional “Hey Google” and bring voice shortcuts. At the time, it was added to the menu for some users, and users could use it as an alternative way for things like snoozing an alarm or answering a call.

Anyway, it seems that Google is preparing for the public release of quick phrases. The internal codename for the feature was “guacamole,” and now XDA founding proves guacamole is a name for referring to quick phrases.

According to the found strings, dynamic shortcuts are “related to what you’re typing and can be based on interactions with apps on your device.”
