Google Assistant makes its way to tablets and older phones

Google on Wednesday announced its powerful Assistant technology will start rolling out to even more devices, including tablets running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Google Assistant’s wider rollout is great news for Android users, as it brings the technology to many more consumers. Seeing it on tablets is especially exciting since the market of Android tablets hasn’t exactly been on fire.

The rollout also applies to phones running Android 5.0 Lollipop, which is still a big contingent of Android’s larger user base. If you’re in the U.S., UK, India, Australia, Canada, or Singapore, you should see Assistant sometime today or in the next few days.

Google said Assistant for tablets should be available in the coming weeks to users in the U.S.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to use Google’s Assistant, the platform is capable of engaging in two-way conversations, along with setting reminders and integrating with smart home devices.
