Google Assistant is coming to Marshmallow and Nougat powered Android smartphones

Google Assistant is the answer to search giants from Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana.

Google is finally bringing ‘Google Assistant’ to Android Marshmallow and non-Google phones running on it. Google Assistant was first introduced as an exclusive AI assistant for wearable things like Google Pixel smartphones, Google Home wireless speakers and Android Wire 2.0. With the new announcement, Google is constantly expanding its footprint in the AI ​​assistant market.

Google Assistant is the answer to the search giants of Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana. With Assistant, Google has adopted the Conversational UI, a big step up from Google Now’s card-based UI. With the help of Assistant, users can do much more with their voice and even control smart home appliances.

Google Assistant will begin rolling out to English users in the United States this week. Google Assistant in English will then hit Android users in Australia, Canada and the UK. Google Assistant will also be available for German speakers in Germany, and Google says it will continue to add more languages ​​next year.

At MWC last evening, Google announced a partnership with LG, Nokia and Motorola to bring Google Assistant to their new devices. The LG G6 thus became the first non-Google smartphone to officially come out of the box with Google Assistant.

For connected smart appliance manufacturers, AI is considered the next big platform. Amazon is already pushing hard in this segment, offering its Alexa as a platform for third party OEMs to integrate into their devices. With Assistant now coming to more Android smartphones, Google is entering a larger pool and will help provide more data in its machine learning algorithms.
