Starting today, more Android users can get help from Google Assistant
In part this is because Apple already offers its own system-level voice assistant, Siri; it is also because Google would need to secure permission to transmit your personal data as it sends your spoken question to its servers to get you a response.
Google on Thursday announced that its AI-powered virtual assistant will now be available with a wider range of smartphones running on Nougat and Marshmallow flavour of Android.
However, the digital assistant will be released for English users in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, as well as Germany speakers in Germany, in the coming weeks. Previous year at the Google I/O, when the company announced about its upcoming AI-powered personal assistant, both Apple and Windows made significant changes to their respective personal assistants. Most people like Google Assistant for a lot of reasons but the fact that Google Assistant is better than Siri or not is and will remain a debatable topic for a long time.
While this may seem like a small change, it makes using Google Assistant frictionless and easier to discover.
Google has added another noteworthy editing feature into the Google Photos App, and this time it is first making its debut on the Android variant of its app. Previously, Assistant was restricted to just Google's Pixel phones and a small collection of upcoming devices. In case you don't know which variant of Google Play Services you need, you can check out Play Services Info app made by third-party app developer Weberdo. While on Google Allo, we only got a glimpse of it, we saw the entire working of Google Assistant on Google Pixel. If you liked Now on Tap and are a little anxious about losing this functionality, don't fret; you can just hold the home button and swipe up instead of releasing to get results similar to Now on Tap. The company has said that additional languages will be added for assistant in the course of the year. In the past few months, Microsoft has not been putting as many developmental efforts on the Windows Phone platform, but has been focusing more on Android.
