Google Assistant shortcut app now installs on Lollipop, tablets

Google Assistant has been out for some time now on Android and was welcomed to the iPhone previous year.

Google Assistant is a free download from the App Store.

While it's a relatively safe assumption that most iPhone and iPad users prefer Siri to other AI assistants, there are always going to be some who are faithful to others.

Nicolas Cage Is Finally Getting The Chance To Play Superman (Sort Of)
With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. Cage came very close to playing the part on screen before, going so far as to try out different Superman costumes.

"The Assistant on iPad can do everything the Assistant on your iPhone can do, with the added benefit of a bigger screen that supports both portrait and landscape mode", states Google Assistant Product Manager Brendan Lim. Keep in mind that Apple will only allow a third-party assistant like Google Assistant, Cortana and Alexa to work when the app is open.

Consumers can ask Google assistant to check the weather, control smart home devices, cast content to TVs via Chromecast and more. Like most updates or features Google pushes out, Assistant could be coming out in phases, so if you haven't gotten this feature yet, don't worry. Google Assistant for iPad is launching today, and it's available in a handful of different languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish. This update is merely for the app shortcut listing on the Google Play Store, bringing the APK's minimum API level down to 21.
