In May of last year, Google announced it was bringing Google Assistant to iPhones. Today, the same can be said for iPads. Hooray, iPads!
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. Other than that, it should be the same Assistant you know and love, capable of controlling your smart home, checking weather, calendar events, plus everything else.
Need a few examples of things you can do with Google Assistant on your iPad?
- Set the mood by having the Assistant “dim the lights”
- Cast to your TV by asking the Assistant to “watch the latest news on the living room TV”
- Stay in touch by asking the Assistant to “video call mom” or “text Lauren”
- Keep up with your chores by asking the Assistant to “remind me to take out the recycling at 8 PM”
Assistant for iPads is rolling out today!
