Now people with Android tablets and phones with older versions of Android can access Google Assistant. Other regions receiving the update include Italy, Japan, Germany, Brazil, and Korea. During the initial launch, the Google Assistant is only limited to smartphones running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and above.

If your Google Play Services is up to date, you should get an opt-in notification inviting you to install the Google Assistant.

Called The Complete Android Oreo with Kotlin Bundle, this training bundle helps you move from desire to achievement in 105 training hours. The Assistant for tablets will first be rolling out to the US users with English as the default language.

Thanks to the latest word from Google, Assistant will soon be on a staggering amount of devices.

The Assistant on tablets will be rolling out over the coming week to users with the language set to English in the U.S. It is even available on the Android Wear smartwatches and Google's smart speaker, Google Home.

Another cool (for some, it may be creepy) aspect of Google Assistant is that it listens to every conversation you make on the phone. It will be coming to more languages next year. The update also doesn't include India, the second-largest smartphone market in the world, where users are more likely to purchase more cheap devices with older versions of Android on board.
