Google Assistant to come to all Nougat, Marshmallow phones

Sunday 26 February 2017 | 15:36 CET | News
Google announced plans to roll out its Google Assistant software to more Android smartphones. First launched with its own Pixel smartphones and also integrated with the upcoming LG G6, Google Assistant is now expanding to smartphones running Android 7.0 Nougat and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
