Virtual assistants that can respond to spoken queries are popular. However, in some situations, users may prefer to provide input via typing or other modalities, rather than voice. This disclosure describes a virtual assistant with a user interface that enables a user to provide spoken as well as typed input. A typeahead search is performed based on received partial input and tappable query suggestions are provided to the user. If the user selects a suggested query, the corresponding action is performed directly, without the user having to complete the query input.
