Google Assistant iOS app now offers native support for iPad

With it being time for iPads to receive this update, it seems a little too late Google pushed this out but nevertheless some iPad owners are probably happy to see a different assistant than Siri.

Google today announced it's bringing the Assistant to Apple's iPad.

So, what's changed in the jump from iPhone to iPad?

"Plus, you can stay productive by multitasking on iPad with iOS 11, letting you chat with the Assistant while you play a game, plan a trip, or check your calendar".

What do you guys think about Google Assistant coming to the iPad?

As with all other non-Siri AI, Apple limits Google Assistant's functionality to its app, but that may not be as big of a problem with multitasking.

Consumers can ask Google assistant to check the weather, control smart home devices, cast content to TVs via Chromecast and more.

iPad support should be rolling out today, with language compatibility for English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish. Mind you, while there are more commands available, you'll still be limited as far as what you can accomplish with the Assistant on iOS. Microsoft released an iPad-optimized version of Cortana last month, after Amazon's Alexa ranked third overall in iPad App Store downloads during the 2017 holiday season.
