Google Assistant may arrive on iPhone some day

Last year, Google made waves by announcing its new virtual assistant called Google Assistant. Basically, Google Assistant seems to be like any other virtual helper on the surface, but it is much smarter and comes with more advanced features.

Aside from the basic things you can do with Google Assistant such as booking a table at your favorite restaurant, sending messages and navigating to where you want to go on your device, there are still more things you can do with Google’s virtual helper.


Google Assistant is expected to hit as many different devices as this year along with Google Pixel, Google Home and Android Wear-based smartwatches. At this year’s Mobile World Congress, Google says that it may bring its virtual assistant to other devices including Apple-branded devices. In reality, Google Assistant is already available on iPhones, but it’s housed within Google’s new chat app, Google Allo.

According to tech experts, with Google’s plan to bring Google Assistant to Apple-branded devices, Google will compete directly with Siri, Apple’s virtual helper. In reality, Google Assistant is now more advanced than Apple Siri thanks to its exciting features. Apple is expected to launch upgrades to Siri at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference.

For some background, Google Assistant allows you to control smart home devices like those from Philips Hue, Nest and Samsung SmartThings. Besides, you can use Google Assistant to search your emails in Gmail from a specific sender. Noticeably, with Google Assistant, you can play music in Spotify and Google Play Music.

Smartphones have been Google’s main focus in recent years. Last year, Google announced its smartphones called Pixel and Pixel XL, the first smartphones carrying Google’s branding. Google Pixel and Pixel XL come with many exclusive features including Pixel Launcher, unlimited Google Photos storage, new Pixel camera, Night Light and move gestures.
