Dec 14, 2017, 10:10
That changes now. The company announced on Wednesday that Google Assistant is now coming to some older devices. Google has already started the roll out of Assistant to phones running 5.0 Lollipop with the language set to English in the U.S., UK, India, Australia, Canada and Singapore. Other regions receiving the update include Italy, Japan, Germany, Brazil, and Korea. The personal assistant has been available for phones running Android 6.0 and 7.0 for nearly a year now, but tablets running 7.0 and 6.0 will be receiving Assistant starting today.
If your Google Play Services is up to date, you should get an opt-in notification inviting you to install the Google Assistant. Older phone owners were stuck with upgrading or going Assistant-less. Assistant will be rolling out to all Android tablet users in the USA with the language set in English.
Google first unveiled Google Assistant in 2016 and launched it on the Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones. This makes it the second most-used operating system after Marshmallow that runs on 30 percent smartphones. For now, only the Android tablet users in the USA will receive the feature. Google also says that it optimized its preinstalled Google Apps to occupy half the space they used to, which in turn doubles the amount of storage available to the end user on a basic smartphone.
Meanwhile, Google is also now bringing the digital helper to tablets for the first time.
