It does a lot and it's fantastic, when it works. Far too many bugs considering the amount of money, time, research, and development that's gone into this program. The texting feature is always hit or miss and often texts someone other than who I specifically mentioned. This has led to very confusing situations. It's wonderful to use when the routines, songs, GPS, etc. work! It just doesn't work, so much of the time.

Update.. I already wrote to community. No help. It seems to be working poorly with recent updates. When I tell the assistant to add items to a list, it says it does it, even shows in the pop-up screen on android that it is on the list but doesn't actually save it to my list. Also when I tell it to read messages when driving sometimes the volume is decreased to basically silenced and even adjusting with volume buttons won't fix. Also no longer can use "repeat that".

This app has become really finicky on both of my phones. It randomly stops working, or responding. "Hey Google" seems to only work when it wants to, and restarting the phone seems to be the only remedy. Restarting only works for a short time before it happens again. The only assistant enabled device I can really rely on these days is my Google Home Mini. Might have to consider another assistant solution.
