The rollout of the Google Assistant to Android tablets is after the success of the digital assistant on smartphones, smart speakers in addition to Android Wear fitness trackers. The voice assistant was introduced in May 2016 at Google’s developer conference along with the Google Allo app and Google home smart speaker.

Google recently refreshed the assistant with several new features optimized for users based in India. The search-engine giant is also developing a special edition of Google Assistant for Reliance JioPhone. If you work with JioPhone, you can expect an update within the next three months.
According to Android distribution data, Google Assistant is currently available to nearly 80 percent of Android devices across the world. The company has overtaken Amazon Alexa and Apple Siri in a bid to tap billions of users to become productive with their daily lifestyle.
