Get your Assistant now! -Google Assistant rolling out to Android Nougat and Marshmallow devices


About 5 months ago, on October 4, 2016 Google unveiled a new voice controlled AI named Google Assistant. It was a great addition in android ecosystem as we already had Google Now but it didn’t have any personality, and that is the only place where Google lacked from Apple’s Siri. Now the new Assistant had very charming personality and could even chat with you and pick up previous conversations and give answers based on them. But at that time Assistant was limited only to Google Pixel devices only. But that is not the case anymore.

Yesterday Google Started Rolling out the Assistant to all eligible android nougat and marshmallow devices. There were speculations since last week that Google will be releasing Assistant to other devices but yesterday Google confirmed this news by uploading video to YouTube. Take a look: -



To get Google Assistant Users will need to be running Android M (Marshmallow) or N (Nougat) on a phone with Google Play services and at least 1.5GB of RAM and a 720p screen. The rollout will also be staggered so that English language users in the US will see it show up first, followed by another wave of rollouts to Canadians and Australians. German users will also get the service in their native tongue, but other languages aren't expected until "the coming year." While the LG G6 gets to claim the title of first non-Google device to ship with Assistant, we can expect other manufacturers with recently released devices to start touting the new bonus feature soon. So you might have to hold on for some time till you get your own Google Assistant.
