Google Assistant now features native support for the Apple iPad

Google Assistant is a free download from the App Store.

"The Assistant on iPad can do everything the Assistant on your iPhone can do, with the added benefit of a bigger screen that supports both portrait and landscape mode", states Google Assistant Product Manager Brendan Lim.

So, what's changed in the jump from iPhone to iPad?

Much of the app's functionality simply mirrors that available from Siri, but if you're an iPad owner who leans more toward the Google ecosystem, Google Assistant gives you voice access to Gmail and Google Calendar. For instance, you can pull Google Assistant up as you work on something in another app or play a game. Additionally, on version 7.23 of the Google app beta, we managed to enable similar Reminders and Purchases menu in Assistant's Settings list.

Consumers can ask Google assistant to check the weather, control smart home devices, cast content to TVs via Chromecast and more. Mind you, while there are more commands available, you'll still be limited as far as what you can accomplish with the Assistant on iOS. The app has been updated to automatically fit all iPad model displays.

Google Assistant is now rolling out to iPads starting today and is now available in these languages, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish.
