Google Assistant roll out begins to devices running Android Marshmallow and Nougat

Up until now Google's digital voice assistant had been available on Pixel smartphone, Google Home smart speaker, Google Allo chat app, and Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches, but that's changing starting today.

Now as promised Google has begun rolling out Google assistant to all devices running Android Marshmallow and Nougat, given that they feature Google Play service, 1.5GB RAM and HD (720p) display.

The Google Assistant will roll out first to English users in the U.S, followed by users in Australia, Canada and the UK, as well as German users in Germany. Support for more language will come soon. The roll will happen through Google Play services, so eligible devices will get it automatically.

The Google Assistant is a beefed up version of 'OK Google' voice search/command. You can have one-on-one conversations or ask questions, set reminders, translation perform, web search, ask for latest new or weather updates, control smart home products and more. To bring up Google Assistant, you can either long press the home button or say 'Ok Google' and give the voice commands.

The recently launched LG G6, Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 at MWC 2017, already comes pre-loaded with Google Assistant.
