The Google Assistant app now rolling out to non-Pixel devices
The Google Assistant app is ultimately the successor to Google Now, and the assistant’s transition has taken a while.
Debuting on Google Allo, then making its way to the Google Pixel with Android Nougat, and more recently, though slowly, making its way to more non-Pixel/Nexus devices.
The first rollout began over a week ago.
A report shows that it has received an influx of notifications and messages on various social media with readers reporting that Google has flipped the switch for Google Assistant on non-Pixel devices.
Now, the rollout is in full effect. We summoned Google Now on two Galaxy S7 edge devices, as well as a Moto Z Force, and these devices “Meet Google Assistant” prompts.
Google Assistant App is rolling out now English users in the US. Next in line are English users in Australia, Canada, UK, and German-speaking users in Germany.
