Google's AI Assistant Is Coming for Other Android Phones Beyond Pixel | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

With the Mobile World Conference in Full swing a lot of announcements have been coming through and one of the most interesting was from Google who announced that their AI helper, Google Assistant, will begin rolling out to users with smartphones running Android 7.0 Nougat and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. 

This is a new direction with the AI previously being exclusive to the Google Pixel. 

The Google Assistant is reportedly going to arrive first to English users in the United States this week, followed soon after with an English debut in Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. 

Then next up is German speakers and Google have said that it will "continue to add more languages over the coming year." Users with eligible Nougat and Marshmallow devices will automatically gain Google Assistant through Google Play Services. 


Other Android phones will also be incorporating the Google Assistant from the get-go as well, like the LG G6 and some other "newly announced partner devices." Sony, Huawei, Samsung, and HTC are all listed as companies with Android smartphones that will support Google Assistant.

This is Google's way of fighting against Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa and since Android owns most of the market, the Google assistant might just win.

 This would be necessary as the iPhone 8 is reportedly going to be having a more knowledgeable Siri and Google needs an answer to that.

According to Google, the ultimate goal "is to make the Assistant available anywhere you need it." 

That seems like a noble goal if ever there was one.
