As you might have heard, Google Assistant is now being rolled out to Android devices after enjoying a few months of exclusivity (as far as mobile devices are concerned) on the Google Pixel phones. So the question is, will Google consider bringing Google Assistant over onto non-Android devices, such as iOS?

In that regard we have some good news and bad news. The bad news is that Google has nothing to announce yet, but the good news is that Google isn’t closed to the idea and might have hinted at its arrival on iOS, or at least that’s according to a report from Geekster (via AppleInsider).

The report quotes Google product management director Gummi Hafsteinsson who spoke at MWC 2017 this week where he said, “I do not think we have anything to announce at this point. But I think the general philosophy is that we would like to have the Assistant available to as many people as possible.”

Given that pretty much most of Google’s Android apps have eventually ended up on iOS (even Google Now which existed within the Google Search app for iOS), we guess it wouldn’t be a stretch of the imagination to think that Google Assistant could arrive as well. As to when that will be happening, we guess this is something we’ll just have to wait and find out for ourselves. In the meantime how does the idea of Google Assistant arriving on iOS sound to you guys?
