Google Assistant will officially arrive on all Android devices running Android 6.0 and above
In conjunction with the official launch of the LG G6 (which LG and Google today announced will be shipping with the an “optimized” version of the Google Assistant that can work with the screen turned off), the news about Google Assistant coming to all Android devices is also official and Google says the Assistant will be rolling out to English users in the United States first, followed by Australia, Canada, and the UK and then to German users in Germany.
As on the Google Pixel, Assistant will replace Now on tap and can be launched by long pressing the home button or with the "Ok Google" voice command. Google "rollouts" can take a few weeks, so don't expect it to pop up on your phone later tonight. But soon, an update to the Google Search app—which the Assistant is a part of—should arrive and enable the new voice interface on all devices that can handle it.
Here’s the word, straight from the Google blog:
Everyone needs a helping hand sometimes. Enter the Google Assistant, which is conversational, personal and helps you get things done—from telling you about your day to taking a selfie. The Assistant is already available on Pixel, Google Home, Google Allo and Android Wear. Now we’re bringing it to even more people. Starting this week, the Google Assistant is coming to smartphones running Android 7.0 Nougat and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.The company says the period of exclusivity on the Pixel was about refining the Assistant experience before rolling it out to the masses. “It was a new product and we wanted to make sure we took the baby steps required,” Product Lead for Assistant Gummi Hafsteinsson told Bloomberg.
