Although latest version of Google Assistant is available with Android 8.0 Oreo, only 0.5 percent of all Android devices are running the latest operating system. As a result, if you do not currently own a Pixel and Nexus handset, you might not be using the latest version of the application. Given that OEMs are typically slower to bring latest versions of Android to their smartphones, it might be months before you will get Oreo in your smartphones. However, thanks to a recent announcement by Google, you will get your hands on the updated Google Assistant in coming days as the company has started rolling out the update for both Nougat and Marshmallow.
The latest news comes thanks to an announcement by Google. The company stated in the announcement, “From phones to speakers to watches and more, the Google Assistant is already available across a number of devices and languages—and now, it’s coming to Android tablets running Android 7.0 Nougat and 6.0 Marshmallow and phones running 5.0 Lollipop.”
The search engine giant went on to further reveal that it has already started rolling out the update to users in different countries around the world. However, if you are using Android tablet, you will need to wait few more days before getting the update as Google revealed that the update will be rolled out in the upcoming week.
