Google’s Assistant has a lot of advantages over some other assistants on the market, mainly due to the fact that it has Google’s software and engineering behind it, allowing it to answer pretty much any question that you have and understand you most of the time.
Sadly, this assistant has only been available for people on Android, however, as of today, the assistant is coming to the iPhone, finally.
Here’s the description of the app from the App Store:
Meet your Google Assistant. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help… Whether you need a reminder to pick up milk, help finding your travel photos or need to make a dinner reservation, your Assistant is ready to help. To get started, press the mic icon or start typing.
Some things your Assistant can help with:
- Make quick phone calls (e.g. “Call Mom.”)
- Send text messages (e.g. “Text my bestie.”)
- Send emails (e.g. “Email your boss the latest TPS report.”)
- Set reminders (e.g. “Remind me to buy a birthday gift for Sarah.”)
- Set calendar events (e.g. “Set a calendar event for dinner with Charlie tomorrow from 7-9.”)
- Play music (e.g. “Play Jazz music on Youtube.”)
- Navigate to places (e.g. “Get me directions home.”)
- Ask it anything (e.g. “Will I need an umbrella today?”)
You can download the Google Assistant for yourself right now, for free via the source link below. Sadly, it does seem as though it’s only available in the US currently.
