It was initially released in May 2016 on the Pixel and Pixel XL mobile phones but was later introduced to other smartphones in February of the following year.
Users are able to engage Google Assistant with their own voice or by using keyboard input. Google Assistant browses the web, sets alarms and modifies the hardware settings on the smart device.
