It is currently available on the Google Pixel phones, Google Home, Android Wear and messaging app Allo.
Google Assistant is an essential AI-powered successor to voice search. It aims to be more of a conversational feature and go beyond the simple text-to-speech playback and voice query input.
It will be rolling out this week to English users in U.S. and then followed by Australia, Canada and U.K. It will also be rolled out in German language in Germany. More countries and languages will be added in the coming year.
Also, Allo, Google’s messaging app is coming to desktop soon. Google’s VP of Communications Products, Nick Fox announced on Twitter that the application is still in early development. You can see the screenshot below:
Allo appears to be a Chrome app and supports Google Assistant both in the direct chats with the bot and chat with the friends. The application can be tied up to one device at a time.
Google Assistant will soon be available on Android 6.0 and 7.0 devices.
