Google Assistant is rolling out to Apple's iPads

Google Assistant is rolling out to Apple's iPads

Explicit Android tablet support was also added, which brings parity to today's announcement that the Google Assistant is now supported on the iPad, too. This iPad version follows last May's launch of Google Assistant on iPhone.

However, Siri's integration into iOS makes it more powerful when it comes to actually executing tasks - Google Assistant is limited to things Apple allows third-party apps to do. Not much, as Google obviously wants to keep the Assistant experience as similar as possible across both platforms. Note, these are examples you can use if you're at home.

Oddly, new features for Google Assistant often appear first on the standalone iOS app. More screen real estate simply means that you don't have to exit one app just to hop into Google Assistant.

When the app is open, it can listen for "Hey, Google" commands, respond to natural language inquiries, and offer personalized information based on your Google account. It doesn't matter if you're using the iPad in landscape or portrait mode, Google Assistant will still show up. It's available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish.

What do you guys think about Google Assistant coming to the iPad? The app has been updated to automatically fit all iPad model displays.
