Google Assistant Now Available on iPads

11-inch iPad Pro

"The Assistant on iPad can do everything the Assistant on your iPhone can do, with the added benefit of a bigger screen that supports both portrait and landscape mode", states Google Assistant Product Manager Brendan Lim. With it being time for iPads to receive this update, it seems a little too late Google pushed this out but nevertheless some iPad owners are probably happy to see a different assistant than Siri.

So, what's changed in the jump from iPhone to iPad? For instance, you can pull Google Assistant up as you work on something in another app or play a game.

However, Siri's integration into iOS makes it more powerful when it comes to actually executing tasks - Google Assistant is limited to things Apple allows third-party apps to do. Other than that, it should be the same Assistant you know and love, capable of controlling your smart home, checking weather, calendar events, plus everything else. It's available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish. Like most updates or features Google pushes out, Assistant could be coming out in phases, so if you haven't gotten this feature yet, don't worry. You can get started with Google Assistant for iPad by downloading the app from the iTunes App Store [download].
