As detailed this past weekend at MWC, Google is launching Google Assistant for all phones running Marshmallow and higher (Nougat). When that was announced, Google said rollout would begin sometime this week. Well, today is the day!
In a video posted to YouTube, Google says the rollout of Assistant begins today, first going out to English users in the US, followed by English users in Australia.
Here’s what Google previously sad about devices receiving Assistant.
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. We’ll continue to add more languages over the coming year.
The Google Assistant will automatically come to eligible Android phones running Nougat and Marshmallow with Google Play Services.
To sum it up, be on the lookout for a Play Services update via Google Play on your device. That’s how Assistant will come.
What’s the first thing you’ll do with your Assistant?
