Google announces Assistant for iPhone at Google I/O

Tech News           05/19/2017 - 8:00am           by Z.Zachary           70

As previously rumored, Google today announced during its I/O developer conference that its Assistant platform is coming to iOS.

Update: The Google Assistant for iPhone is now available on the US App Store.

The virtual assistant will arrive soon as a standalone app for iPhone, initially for users in the US. Previously the Siri competitor was only available through its Allo messaging app and for Android and Google Home devices. Meet your Google Assistant. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help… Whether you need a reminder to pick up milk, help finding your travel photos or need to make a dinner reservation, your Assistant is ready to help. To get started, press the mic icon or start typing.

Some things your Assistant can help with:

  • Make quick phone calls (e.g. “Call Mom.”)
  • Send text messages (e.g. “Text my bestie.”)
  • Send emails (e.g. “Email your boss the latest TPS report.”)
  • Set reminders (e.g. “Remind me to buy a birthday gift for Sarah.”)
  • Set calendar events (e.g. “Set a calendar event for dinner with Charlie tomorrow from 7-9.”)
  • Play music (e.g. “Play Jazz music on Youtube.”)
  • Navigate to places (e.g. “Get me directions home.”)
  • Ask it anything (e.g. “Will I need an umbrella today?”)
