This disclosure describes techniques to access functionality available only on a mobile device such as a smartphone or wearable device via alternate channels when the mobile device is not in close proximity to the user. The on-device assistant is enabled to access mobile specific functionality when the user and their mobile device are in different locations. Comparison of physical locations of the mobile device and user is performed when the user logs into their work terminal or accesses a work device, indicating the user is no longer in the vicinity of the mobile device. For example, the on-device assistant forwards incoming phone calls to a work phone and forwards push notifications to a work device through a chat application or web interface.
