Google Assistant is no longer Pixel, Google Home, or Android Wear exclusive. That’s right, if you have an Android smartphone running Android 7 or Android 6, you could be seeing it rolling out to you soon. Google Assistant responds to your queries in a conversational and personal manner and can answer questions, offer translations, remind you about something, and much more.
Some of the assistance Google Assistant can offer include being able to ask it:
- What’s my confirmation number for my London flight?
- Take me to Museu Picasso.
- Show my photos of sunsets in Tahoe.
- Do I need an umbrella today?
- Turn on the living room lights.
Recently released to smartwatches running Android Wear 2.0, the LG G6 will also ship with Google Assistant, and Google has plans to bring it to TVs and cars down the road as well. The service will begin rolling out in the U.S. this week, followed by Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Germany with more languages being added throughout the year.
