Updated On Mar 10, 2017- Guide: Download and Install Google Assistant Right Now On Your Android Device.Google Now has finally developed a more personal assistant. The AI-powered assistant not only understands context-based conversations, but it also connects to other Google products and works in sync with them which is great and now it seems better than “Siri” in many ways.
For instance, Google Home that uses Google Assistant as its core functionality can listen to your commands either through your voice or through your smartphones just like Amazone’s Alexa.Google Assistant can also carry out multiple operations such as making lists, setting alarms, translating languages and many more.
Talking about the situation dependent conversations, the Google Assistant pays attention to the previous query and provides answer accordingly. For instance, you’re planning a meeting, so you ask the Assistant for a restaurant near your University, and then you jump to the next question and ask if there’s a Lebanese restaurant nearby. Google Assistant is quick enough to understand that and even provides you with options to book a meeting from within the app.
Now the great news is that anyone can install the Google Assistant on his android phone if that runs android marshmallow or any latest versions of android.Follow this guide to Download and Install Google Assistant Right Now On Your Android device.
