Google Assistant has been out for some time now on Android and was welcomed to the iPhone last year. Now Google is bringing their Assistant to iPads all around. With it being time for iPads to receive this update, it seems a little too late Google pushed this out but nevertheless some iPad owners are probably happy to see a different assistant than Siri.
Google has provided everyone with a few examples of what Assistant can do on your iPad. Note, these are examples you can use if you’re at home.
- Set the mood by having the Assistant “dim the lights”
- Cast to your TV by asking the Assistant to “watch the latest news on the living room TV”
- Stay in touch by asking the Assistant to “video call mom” or “text Lauren”
- Keep up with your chores by asking the Assistant to “remind me to take out the recycling at 8 PM
There’s more to it than what can be done above, thanks to multitasking on the iPad, if you ask for Google Assistant while doing something else, a second screen will pop up letting you say what you need to say such as setting up a dinner date or marking something in your calendar. It doesn’t matter if you’re using the iPad in landscape or portrait mode, Google Assistant will still show up.
Google Assistant is currently rolling out to iPads starting today and is currently available in these languages, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish. Like most updates or features Google pushes out, Assistant could be coming out in phases, so if you haven’t gotten this feature yet, don’t worry.
