Google Assistant for iPad cranks up Siri's competition

Google Assistant for iPad cranks up Siri's competition

Thanks to an update to the Google Assistant for iOS app, the digital assistant now supports the Apple iPad. Of course, the iPad comes equipped with Apple's own Siri as its default assistant. A version for iPhone debuted last summer, but today is the first time this software runs well on a tablet. However, that doesn't mean there aren't improvements to be found in the iPad version, as the iPad's bigger screen means that you'll be able to use the app in both landscape and portrait mode. Other than that, it should be the same Assistant you know and love, capable of controlling your smart home, checking weather, calendar events, plus everything else. More screen real estate simply means that you don't have to exit one app just to hop into Google Assistant.

However, the Google software has no equivalent to "Hey Siri" on iOS devices. It's available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish.
