Google Assistant to Soon Reach Android Devices Running Marshmallow and Above


After getting experience on the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Google Home and the Google Allo Messenger, the Google Assistant virtual assistant client will soon make its way to other Android devices running version 6.0 Marshmallow or above.


The Google Assistant client currently supports English users and will be made available in the US market starting this week followed by the UK, Australia, and Canada in the coming weeks.

Support for the German language will be added in the upcoming weeks and hence the service will then move to support Germany as well.

Google says that apart from English and German, they will be adding support for more languages by the end of this year.

Users with devices running Android version 6.0 Marshmallow and above will receive the Google Assistant via an update for the Google Play Services installed on their devices.

We have already begun to see other manufacturers opt to include the Google Assistant on their devices, similar to what LG has done with their just-announced LG G6 flagship of 2017.

As the competitor to the LG G6, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to get launched in the next few weeks, it would be interesting to see whether the Galaxy S8 will feature the Google Assistant or not. As the Galaxy S8 is expected to feature Samsung-made Bixby client, a competitor to the Google Assistant.
