Already available on Pixel handsets, Google Home, Google Allo, and Android Wear, Google's virtual assistant is now ready to reach various other devices that run Marshmallow and Nougat.

Google Assistant has been available for a while but only worked on a limited range of products. This software that allows its users to interact with Google apps and services via natural language is now finally ready to reach more products that run Nougat or Marshmallow.

According to Google's blog known as The Keyword, "The Google Assistant will begin rolling out this week to English users in the U.S., followed by English in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, as well as German speakers in Germany." More languages should be added over the coming year as well.

Those who did not experience the Google Assistant on Pixel, Google Home, Google Allo and Android Wear yet can take it for a spin in Barcelona this week, where the Mobile World Congress trade show is taking place. Google Assistant is being shown at the Android Global Village running on a few non-Google devices made by big brands in the industry, including Huawei, Samsung, Sony, and HTC.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
