Google Assistant shortcut app now installs on Lollipop, tablets

Google Assistant is launching today on iPad, allowing customers to control their smart home, make calls, send texts, set reminders and more, from their Apple tablet. This iPad version follows last May's launch of Google Assistant on iPhone. That's why it's critical for apps like Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa app to support all platforms, and not just their own hardware - like Android devices or Fire tablets.

When the app is open, it can listen for "Hey, Google" commands, respond to natural language inquiries, and offer personalized information based on your Google account.

Deep down inside, we always knew we couldn't have nice things, didn't we? "[Grandchild] Chandler will be my ring bearer ". Jackson picked out a pretty sparkler for his fiancée and shared a picture of the engagement ring on Twitter.

Google also points out that with multitasking in iOS 11, you can take advantage of that larger screen size in other ways. 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.

As with all other non-Siri AI, Apple limits Google Assistant's functionality to its app, but that may not be as big of a problem with multitasking. You can either type or speak requests to the Assistant, depending on your preferences. It doesn't matter if you're using the iPad in landscape or portrait mode, Google Assistant will still show up. This update is merely for the app shortcut listing on the Google Play Store, bringing the APK's minimum API level down to 21. It's available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish.
