Google Assistant comes to iOS
As I reported earlier, Google has finally released its digital assistant Google Assistant to Android. Google has made this announcement at its I/O developer conference.
Google Assistant is a powerful digital assistant and it will be competing with Siri. You can ask complicated queries. You can just open the Google App, tap on mic button and speak to Assistant. The company has also announced new partnerships with third-party companies.
Google Assistant for iOS will not replace Siri, but you will get a dedicated app to enjoy features of Assistant. It will also not allow you to use the Home button to trigger Google Assistant.
Google Assistant on iOS will be limited and you probably won’t get the “Always on” system that you enjoy on iOS. So, it will not allow you to just say “OK Google” to perform actions when the screen is off. So, it will be hard to compete with the default option. Google Assistant only works in English, but Siri is available in many other languages.
Google Assistant is already available to Android phones, tablets, Android wear and Google Home. It will soon come to Android TV and Android Auto.
Google has also tweeted to confirm this release.
