Google Brings the Assistant to the iPad

Should I Buy An Ipad Pro Cnet

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.

As an exclusive to the iPad, Google will even let you use the Assistant in multitasking on iOS 11.

Analysts Ratings on: Nutanix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTNX)
Therefore 54% are positive. (NASDAQ:NTNX) hit a new 52-week high and has $54.57 target or 6.00 % above today's $51.48 share price. Following the completion of the transaction, the director now directly owns 55,300 shares in the company, valued at $1,973,104.

Available for free from the iOS App Store, Google Assistant version 1.2.4507 promises the "full Assistant experience on your iPad" and has an interface formatted for all iPad screens - from the 7.9-inch iPad mini series to the largest 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Once you're in the app, Google Assistant has most of the functionality you're used to on other platforms, whether its controlling home automation systems through voice commands, scheduling reminders, or composing text messages. I've been using the Google Assistant on and off over the last few weeks and for most tasks, it does a far better job compared to Siri or Alexa. Like all digital assistants except Siri, the app must be manually opened on the iPad and can not be summoned in the background as on Android devices.

The Google Assistant listing on the Play Store might only be a glorified shortcut, but it's still one avenue for accessing the Assistant on supported devices.
