Google Assistant Now Available on the iPad

While it's a relatively safe assumption that most iPhone and iPad users prefer Siri to other AI assistants, there are always going to be some who are faithful to others.

Google Assistant has been out for some time now on Android and was welcomed to the iPhone previous year.

In May of previous year, Google announced it was bringing Google Assistant to iPhones.

The iPad app is available today on Apple's App Store. 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. In addition to common AI assistant features such as current news, driving directions, and weather, over 1 million actions are available from the app and searchable via an Explore button found on the main screen.

What do you guys think about Google Assistant coming to the iPad? Like all digital assistants except Siri, the app must be manually opened on the iPad and can not be summoned in the background as on Android devices. You can get started with Google Assistant for iPad by downloading the app from the iTunes App Store [download]. It also can help you compose emails, set reminders and calendar events, play music, help you navigation, answer questions, cast to your TV and control connected smart home devices, among other things. Today, it's offered on iOS in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish, Google notes.
