    Google Assistant was originally a service exclusive to the Pixel and Pixel XL along with a few other Nougat devices. Now it is starting to roll out to even more devices some of those running Marshmallow! Google Assistant is a smart assistant that learns from how you use it on a daily basis. It provides more of a conversational experience. Google assistant assists you in booking reservations, making notes, setting alarms, making calls, sending text messages, settings reminders, grabbing sports scores, and more. The update should arrive on your device this month!

    How will this work with the Moto phones that have the assistant app now? Is this just the same thing or something else entirely?

    Something else entirely. Think of it as "OK Google Version 2.0".

    Sweet! Thanks. OK Google works pretty well, but if it gets improved, even better.

    I prefer Google Now to tell you the truth. Assistant is just seems to be in the way.

    Fake news. It's not in the play store. Fail.

    Fake news? Too much of that on TV lately, not here. Like any other major app update, it rolls out slowly. Not all phones are compatible, not all phones will get it. Those that are compatible don't all get the update at once. I'm pretty sure this process hasn't changed much since 2009, it will roll out to your phone when available... if your phone is available to receive the update. Until then....Relax, enjoy a good book, go on a hike, enjoy a day at the beach, watch a good movie, brew fresh coffee.... Your phone will be OK and function just fine until the update arrives.

    You have a Note 4, it may be a minute before you see it.

    From what I read this morning it's starting to roll out pretty quickly all across Canada. Good deal, eh?
