Google Assistant is Now Available for iPad

Google Assistant is Now Available for iPad”

As you can see in the header image above, with iOS 11, iPad owners can multitask pretty well with an Assistant panel open alongside other apps. This iPad version follows last May's launch of Google Assistant on iPhone. Not much, as Google obviously wants to keep the Assistant experience as similar as possible across both platforms. You do get to view more content from the results in most cases, but generally speaking, the interface is just like a really big phone.

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.

With the Assistant on your iPad, Google says you can do things like control your lights, cast things to your TV, place video calls, text your friends, and set reminders.

That being said, many folks who have used both the Assistant and Apple's Siri recommend the former over the latter by a long shot. Explicit Android tablet support was also added, which brings parity to today's announcement that the Google Assistant is now supported on the iPad, too.

Everyone can download the Assistant for iPad now for free from the App Store.
