Meet your Google Assistant. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help.
Find answers and get things done while on-the-go with the help of your Google Assistant. Remind yourself to stop by the store, pull up your travel photos to show a friend, or make a dinner reservation.
With the Assistant app, you can:
- Make quick phone calls (e.g. "Call Mom.")
- Send text messages (e.g. "Text my bestie.")
- Email your boss (e.g. "Here is 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 places (e.g. "Get me directions home.")
- Weather information (e.g. "Do I need an umbrella today?")
*Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 1.1.9409
We've updated the app to bring you the best Assistant experience. This release has bug fixes and stability improvements.
Needs to be iPad Native
Google Assistant is really nice to have on my iPhone and iPad. It does some things better than Siri, some things worse... mainly it’s more fun but less useful than Siri, but that’s mainly due to lack of system integration.
My main complaint with this app is that it doesn’t run native on iPad. Seriously, at this point what excuse does an app have not to run native on iPad?? Apple has made it extremely easy to scale apps up for the bigger screen and higher resolution, and for an app with as simple of an interface as Google Assistant it would be rather easy to make it run beautifully at fullscreen on iPad using UIKit and AutoLayout. They could also optimize it for SplitView rather easily as well, which would be extremely helpful when multitasking. I hope they get on that, because it would make this app so much better!
Good, but restricted by apple.
I love Google assistant. I use it in my home for home control, alarms, questions, etc... However the app on iPhone is restricting. You have to go through steps of opening it like a normal app (I know that's just an Apple thing) but what gets me is reminders and directions. I'll use my Google home to set reminders to do something but my iPhone will not pop up with that reminder at the location or time I chose. Likewise, when I ask for directions it says "I sent them to your phone" but nothing ever come through. I use to be able to get reminders and such on my iPhone but they do not come through anymore like they are supposed to.
Better then Siri!! Sorry Siri.... (Recommend)!
Fast and simple as any google product! No lag when speaking or asking google assistant! Siri always had that issue! 🤯 Great alternative if you want a fast and lag free assistant! 🤩
