Google Assistant For iPad Out Now

Google Assistant adds iPad support, joins Alexa and Cortana as Siri rivals

Google Assistant adds iPad support, joins Alexa and Cortana as Siri rivals

Google bought Google Assistant for iPhone past year. It can do everything that Assistant is already capable of doing on the iPhone. That's happening today. Google today announced that it has released Google Assistant for iPad.

While Apple typically announces hundreds of new iPhone software features at WWDC, the company decided in January to push back some new features to 2019. Not much, as Google obviously wants to keep the Assistant experience as similar as possible across both platforms. The Google Assistant iPad app is a tablet-specific version with support for a larger screen, as well as support for portrait and landscape mode.

Google has provided everyone with a few examples of what Assistant can do on your iPad.

As with all other non-Siri AI, Apple limits Google Assistant's functionality to its app, but that may not be as big of a problem with multitasking.

So, if you're an Apple user who happens to enjoy Google's services, you now have more options when it comes to using Google Assistant on iOS. This includes controlling compatible smart devices, casting content to the TV, making video calls or sending text messages, and adding reminders via voice commands. Do check the app out from the App Store and let us know your opinion on it.

Google has started rolling out Assistant for iPad and it will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish languages.
