Google announced last week that its latest assistant, which previously was only available on Pixel devices, was coming to all Android devices running Marshmallow and Nougat. Users just need to long-press the home button to launch Google Assistant.
As promised, Google's Android team released on Friday (March 3) the much-anticipated Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based digital butler Google Assistant to all eligible smartphones.
In keeping with past strategy, Google may be set for multiple releases, with the company reportedly planning to release more than one Pixel 2 device. The only new feature, according to the changelist, allows Android users to access Cortana from the lock screen.
Google Assistant is now being rolled out for devices powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Google Assistant isn't exactly a new feature. However, while the early question was whether the Google Assistant will make way to other Android smartphones. Canadians and Australians will be the next customers to get the AI, while Germans will see the feature in their native tongue at some point down the road. Getting Google Assistant on the iPhone might be a little trickier.

Florida refused to expand Medicaid under the ACA, even though the federal government would have paid for the expansion. But, he assured them that a "fantastic" replacement plan is on the way that will lower costs and improve healthcare.
Fortunately, users will not have to go through the headache of waiting for an OS update to get their hands on Google Assistant. It's highly unlikely that Apple would ship a future iPhone model with Google Assistant integrated into the mobile operating system the way Siri is, and instead it would have to be brought over through an iOS app. Google is likely going to leave the budget segment to other manufacturers.
As of now, Google Assistant is being rolled out to English users in the USA, and will be followed by the English in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, as well as German-speakers in Germany. The more they use their phones, the more data Google is able to collect. He also added that, "Our goal is to make the Assistant available anywhere you need it".
There have been a few reports recently that hinted at Google testing a more affordable version of the Pixel 2 smartphone.
The update will replace Now on Tap, introduced in Android 6.0, with Google Assistant.
