Google Assistant became official in October 2016 with Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL smartphones. Later it also came with Google Home connected the speaker and more devices. It was also confirmed that Google Assistant will come to Android TV soon. Now the company is working to bring it to iOS.
In iOS, Google Assistant will have to compete with native digital assistant Siri. Microsoft also brought Cortana for iOS but couldn’t get much success. Google has an advantage here. It has a large number of developers working with Assistant’s SDK. Bringing Assistant to iOS will encourage more developers to integrate Assistant with their app’s functionality.
This is still a rumor and we will have to wait until Google I/O to know if this is happening. Stay tuned for more awesome tech stories.
