Google Assistant coming to iOS

At its I/O 2017 developer conference today, Google announced Google Assistant is coming to iOS as a standalone app, rolling out to the U.S. first. Until now, the only way iPhone users could access Google Assistant was through Allo, the Google messaging app nobody uses.

It’s great that Google Assistant is coming, but the lack of integration with iOS will certainly hurt its chances of being used as much as Siri.

  • I don’t get why techies are getting so excited – they seem to be forgetting there’s no trigger for it like Siri!

      Exactly. This is no different than Google Now that is available on iOS.

    Yeah, Apple is never going to give up that long press on the home button to other developers.
