Google Assistant hits Android Marshmallow
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.
