Google Assistant to hit non-Pixel Nougat and Marshmallow phones this week
Google Assistant – the Google’s all new voice assistant that makes Google Home, Android Wear watches and Pixel phones so smart – is on it’s way to your phone this week.
If you happen to have a phone powered by Android 7.0 Nougat or Android 6.0 Marshmallow (and have Google Play Services installed), you’ll get the update in the following week. And since the update is coming via Google Play Services, there’s no need to wait for a slow freaking OTA rollout, Google will simply push it out to your device once it’s ready.
The Assistant is rolling out soon to English users in the United States, followed by English in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, and German speakers in Germany. Of course, Google will add more languages over the coming year.
