Google Assistant Now Comes to Tablets & Lollipop Powered Smartphones

Last year in May, Google unveiled its own voice assistant called Google Assistant. Keeping in the mind that its competitors are Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, and Microsoft’s Cortana they had launched specially for the Pixel users but as time passed by Google Assistant was available for most of the devices!

From today, the Google Assistant will also work on the Android tablets and smartphones running on Android Lollipop & above.

The rollout will happen in the coming days for all the supported devices in the US, UK, India, Australia, Canada, Spain, Mexico, Singapore, Italy, Japan, Germany, Brazil, or Korea. During the initial launch, the Google Assistant is only limited to smartphones running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and above. Talking about the tablets, the Google Assistant still lacks the support for Android 5.0 Lollipop. The tablet users in the U.S with the language set to English will be getting the update in the next couple of weeks.

The users need to hold the home button to trigger the Google Assistant manually, or they can say Ok Google. With the Google Assistant, the user can make phone calls, send text messages, set reminders, set the alarm, and many more. Earlier this month, Google during the launch of Android Go edition also announced the Google Assistant support for the Jio Phone running on KaiOS. Though the JioPhone comes with its own voice assistant called Hello Jio, the Google Assistant announcement came as a surprise.

Google also release the Google Assistant Go, the lite app for the Android Oreo (Go edition) powered smartphones. Unlike the standard Google Assistant app, the Google Assistant Go will come in smaller file size and might lack all the functions.
