If being an iPhone user, you were feeling left out on what Google Assistant has to offer. Then Google has you covered, because at I/O developers conference. Google just announced their Google Assistant support for iOS devices. Don’t worry Siri would still be there and won’t be replaced by Google Assistant. But users who do want to take advantage of the new Google Assistant. Would be able to do so within a dedicated Google app.
Google Engineering Assistant Scott Huffman said ”Today, I’m excited to announce that Google Assistant is available for iPhone’’. The new Google Assistant app is currently available on the Apple App Store. Where users can download it for free, if they want to try it out. If you don’t know when it comes to being an AI, Google Assistant does a far better job than Siri. Aside from that Google Assistant can also be used with third part app within the Apple App Store.
The company announced Google Assistant last year with the launch of their new Google Pixel smartphone. Where currently it is supported on over 100 million Android devices. Where now Apple iPhone user would also be considered among them. For now the only language that Google Assistant supports is English. Which is the only let down about it compared to what Siri has to offer. But Google is working on it and soon a bunch of other language support will be added later on. Which includes Japanese, Italian, Korean, Spanish, German and Brazilian Portuguese.
Google also announced support for typing on their new Google Assistant. Where users can simply type instead of speaking to the phone. This makes it easier for people who do not want to get heard or disturb others around them. Do note that after installing the new Google Assistant software. Users can access it by long pressing the home button on their iPhone smartphones.
