Google is rolling out its latest digital assistant, “the Google Assistant” for Marshmallow and Nougat devices. Exclusive to Google Pixel devices, the Google Assistant is estimated to be more interactive than the Google Now launcher’s digital assistant. Google also included this feature in its Allo messenger app.

If you want to get Google Assistant on hand, far before its official launch, then here’re the steps to do it:
Google Assistant, which earlier was exclusive to Google Pixel and Pixel Plus will soon be rolled out to all smartphones, powered by Android 6.0 and higher operating system versions. Alongside Android 6.0v and higher, Google also has prescribed some other criteria to get Google Assistant on hand. The phones, apart from running on Android 6.0v, required to have a minimum screen resolution of 720 x 1280 or higher and 1.5GB RAM. However, phones, running on Android Marshmallow OS will be easily entailed for new Google Assistant.

In contrast to the current version, the new console of Google Assistant is much more unceremonious, easy-to-use and easy-to-understand. In addition to its roll out to Android-powered handsets, Google also has added the feature to its popular messaging app “Allo”.

How to Activate Google Assistant on Phone
If your device has all such features and meets all the basic criteria, prescribed by Google, then getting the Google Assistant won’t be much harder. All you need to do is to update the Google Play Services of your phone. However, as Google is rolling out its updated Assistant slowly and thus far, not everyone with a companionable handset has access to install it right away, you may not be successful in doing so. If you already have upgraded your device’s Google Play Service and yet, Google Assistant is still not available on your phone, then it means, the roll-out is yet to start in your area yet. So you have to hang around for some more time to get this. Have some more patience!!!

How Do I Update Google Play Services?
Can’t wait to taste the new treat from Google? Here is a simple guide on how to relish the fresh taste of the new Google Assistant on your non-Pixel phones. Just follow the following instructions to do that:
  • Just download the APK file of the latest version of Google play services version 10.5.+ on your computer.  You can find a full listing of these, here.
  • You will also be required Google Search App ver 6.14
  • Copy the APK file to you phone memory/ memory card.
  • Using an appropriate file manager, find the location of the APK file.
  • Tap on the APK file. (a page asking permission to install the APK would pop up)
  • Tap on install and wait for the installation process to complete.


In case you haven’t installed any application outside of Google play before, follow the following steps before installing the APK:
  • Go to Settings on your Android device.
  • Under Settings, tap on Security
  • Find Unknown Sources and tick the checkbox beside it (you are now ready to install APKs from other sources).


However, if the update has arrived for your device, and you are unable to install it, it is possible that the update has not yet been available in your location. It is recommended for you to wait until the official OTA update arrives.

How to check If Google Assistant Is Installed or not? Here’s the procedure
Once downloaded successfully, all you required is to log press the home button or say “Ok, Google.” Your Google Assistant will be activated!
If Google has started rolling out the Assistant feature in our area, and you have updated Google Play Services properly, there will be no setback for you to enjoy Google Assistant. You are ready to go!
To turn on Google assistant on your device and start using it, just press the home button of your device for a longer time. Soon, you will be diverted to Google Assistant page, asking you to permit some acquiescence so that it can start operating. Once you have finished with the permission process, you can start using Google Assistant.

Some Essential tips and tricks to use Google Assistant
To access Google Assistant from your device, just long press on your home button. This is irrespective of the method of installation of the APK. You can give the following pre-included voice commands to the Google Assistant suggested by the company:
  • Where is the nearest Petrol pump?
  • Set the alarm at 6:00 AM.
  • What is the weather like in Delhi?
  • Set a meeting at 5:00 PM with Smith.


Verdict
The current world of technology is a very competitive one. To survive in this world, giants like Google have to step up now and then. This is a major step from Google is aimed at competing with the likes of Microsoft’s Cortana and Apple’s Siri.
Tip
If you are still not able to get the Google Assistant in your phone even after trying the above steps, just change your region to US in the phone and then upadate playstore services and then press and hold the HOME button, your assistant will be up for your service.
