Google Assistant now made compatible with older phones as well as tablets

Android Oreo 8.1 breaks multi-touch on some devices

With Assistant, users can have a more automated experience with their Android tablets, being able to control smart home devices and setting reminders are a few of the handy features that can be handled by Google Assistant.

If you have access to smartphones running Android Lollipop, you have to change the device language to English to enable you to work with the assistant. While Google is still managing the chaotic Android fragmentation, it will bring Assistant to smartphones with older aging software. Due to the highly fragmented Android smartphone market, it was quintessential on Google's part to release the AI assistant to the previous version of the OS as well. The operating system was launched back in 2014, but is still used by nearly 26% of all Android devices.

"Google Assistant also rolling out to users in Italy, Japan, Germany, Brazil and Korea".

The White House also said that Newman's departure would take effect on January 20, exactly a year after Trump was sworn in. She noted that while she more access than most people, she came into the Oval Office only when the president asked her to.

Google says the update will only be available to Android users that have their language set to English in the U.S., U.K., India, Australia, Canada, and Singapore, along with those who have their default language set to Spanish in the U.S., Mexico, and Spain. It will also be available in Spanish but in the United States and Mexico, besides Spain of course. But, starting today Assistant will be available on the above mentioned devices. You will have to launch the Google Assistant app after getting the update.

Google Assistant is a smart AI assistant that can carry out tasks on the basis of your voice commands.

Once you get the Google Assistant, creating a shortcut to it's as easy as opting in - you'll see an Assistant app icon in your device's app drawer. Now Google assistant can also recognize songs.
