How does Google’s WiFi Assistant save data?

Google is adding WiFi Assistant, which was previously only available on Project Fi phones, to other Android device. It’s supposed to decrease data use. What does it do that I don’t do already by connecting to WiFi networks at home and work?
When enabled Google's Wi-Fi Assistant automatically connects you to open and free hotspots, which is supposed to decries your data usage and increase signal strength/performance. In case you are using your data in locations besides your work and home, you will use available Wi-Fi networks instead of your data.
