In a YouTube video, Google announced that it will start rolling out Google Assistant for eligible Android Marshmallow and Nougat devices today. Google’s plans of rolling out the Google Assistant for Android devices was initially unveiled during the Mobile World Congress 2017.

The availability of the update will not be in the form of an app. Instead, Google will introduce the Google Assistant to Android devices through the inclusion of a functionality in the Google Play Store. An update to Google Play services will pop up in the Google Play Store, which means you’re getting the Assistant on your device. Users must be using an Android Marshmallow or Nougat device with at least 1.5 GB of RAM and 720 px resolution screen to be able to avail Assistant’s new features. Google announced the expansion of the Google Assistant to Android devices via a tweet too.

 

While the other eligible Android devices are waiting for the update, the LG G6 bagged the title of being the first non-Pixel phone to be shipped with Google Assistant. Google claims that “hundreds of millions of Android users” will now be able to use the Google Assistant, instead of the voice search feature. In order to activate the Google Assistant, all the user has to do is long press the Home button.

Though Google hasn’t specified the list of “eligible” devices, the update will first be available to Android users in the United States, followed by the United Kingdom,Australia, Canada and Germany. As far as users in India are concerned, it has not yet been ascertained when the Google Assistant update will be launched here.
