Google Assistant Now Available on the iPad


It can do everything that Assistant is already capable of doing on the iPhone.

As you can see in the header image above, with iOS 11, iPad owners can multitask pretty well with an Assistant panel open alongside other apps.

While Apple typically announces hundreds of new iPhone software features at WWDC, the company decided in January to push back some new features to 2019.

If you prefer Google Assistant to Siri, the latest version of the app is available for iPad as well as iPhone ... Like most updates or features Google pushes out, Assistant could be coming out in phases, so if you haven't gotten this feature yet, don't worry. However, that doesn't mean there aren't improvements to be found in the iPad version, as the iPad's bigger screen means that you'll be able to use the app in both landscape and portrait mode.

There's also rumors that Apple will unveil a new version of its cheap iPad. For instance, Amazon has just announced its Alexa app for tablets, including iPad. On iPad, it can dim lights, set reminders, cast to TV, make video calls, send text messages, and more.

While the earlier version of Google Assistant on iOS was available only in English, Google says in a blog post that the new version will be available in other languages including French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish.

Google Assistant is a free download from the App Store.
