So, that someone cannot able to gain access to the phones unexpectedly. As per 9to5Google, Google may enable this lockscreen texting feature in future.
Presently, if you want to send out a text from the lock screen utilizing Google Assistant, an “Unlock to continue …” action appears on the screen and prompts you to enter your passcode.
This week a server-side A/B test accompanying the recent Google app beta version 10.28 shows Assistant’s ‘send a text’ command working while the screen is locked. However, it does not seem to be rolled out widely. It actually sent the message to the recipient and Google Assistant provided the visual and verbal confirmation of it.

However the same smartphone running on Android Q and Pixel 2 XL hasn’t received the Google Assistant lockscreen testing feature. It’s uncertain whether the feature will roll out widely or not but it will make Google Assistant hands-free on phones.
