The roll out of Google Assistant to phones other than the Pixel phones has been inconsistent and confusing. We have seen some random phones get it when their language was set to US English and some get it when set to Aussie English. In the end though Google had NOT YET officially launched it for us on non-Pixel phones but that has now changed with them announcing the roll out today.
On their Australian blog Google have announced that Google Assistant is coming to smartphones running Nougat and Marshmallow. The Google Assistant will automatically arrive on all eligible phones running Google Play services. Google also made mention that you will see them running on “some recently announced partner devices, including Nokia’s 3, 5, 6 and 8 devices.”
Many of us have seen it on their non-Pixel devices for a while but that seems to have been a soft roll out to test it here. Now everyone can enjoy using the best digital assistant available at this time. Try it out on your phone and let us know what you think? What do you use it for?
