Google Assistant updated with iPad support

Google Assistant adds iPad support, joins Alexa and Cortana as Siri rivals Google Assistant for iPad cranks up Siri's competition

New reports have suggested that Google Assistant has now found a new home as it's being welcomed on the iPad.

While Apple typically announces hundreds of new iPhone software features at WWDC, the company decided in January to push back some new features to 2019.

iPad users no longer have to use the 2x display mode when using Google Assistant on their Apple tablet.

Google has provided everyone with a few examples of what Assistant can do on your iPad.

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.

Google Assistant supports multitasking on the iPad. For instance, Amazon has just announced its Alexa app for tablets, including 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. On iPad, it can dim lights, set reminders, cast to TV, make video calls, send text messages, and more.

Assistant is Google's answer to Siri for iOS devices. Let us know by leaving your comments down below, or on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter. Google Assistant for iPad is launching today, and it's available in a handful of different languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish.
