Google Assistant now on iOS

Written by | Apps and OS, Google, Tech, Videos

Google just brought their personal assistant to iOS. Announced at this year’s Google I/O, the company said that Assistant will now be available for iOS users as a separate app.

From the app’s description page, you should be able to make phone calls, send SMS and emails, set reminders and more.

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?”)

Google said that because of API restrictions, Assistant on iOS will be different experience from the Assistant on Android. Currently available in the United States, you can download the Google Assistant for iOS from the App Store.
