Google rolled out Google Assistant to iPhones last year and it was only a matter of time before it expanded its virtual assistant to Apple’s tablets as well. That’s happening today. Google today announced that it has released Google Assistant for iPad. It can do everything that Assistant is already capable of doing on the iPhone.
iPad users will obviously have the added benefit of a bigger screen on the iPad which supports both portrait and landscape modes. They can even multitask on Apple’s tablet running iOS 11 and up as they will be able to chat with Assistant while they use any other app or even play a game.
As previously mentioned, Google Assistant for iPad can do everything that it can already do on the iPhone. This includes controlling compatible smart devices, casting content to the TV, making video calls or sending text messages, and adding reminders via voice commands.
The one caveat here is that since Apple only enables third-party assistants to work within their apps, iPad users can’t invoke Google Assistant with a voice command when the iPad is locked.
Google Assistant for iPad is rolling out today for Apple’s tablet and it’s going to be available in English, French, Italian, Germany, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish languages initially.
