Google Assistant rolling out to Android Marshmallow and Nougat phones

Google Assistant Android M and N

Before the end of February, Google confirmed to those with Android Marshmallow and Nougat devices that they’d have access to Google Assistant soon. Turns out, that is indeed the case.

Google has just launched a YouTube video welcoming Assistant to those handsets. The video is a standard promotional clip, with the Assistant icon popping up on devices that have access to the digital personal assistant (there are a lot of Pixels in there).

We also get to see a kid covered in flour, with a narrator telling Assistant to remind them to buy more flour.

Google confirms in the description of the video that Assistant is rolling out to Android Marshmallow and Nougat devices beginning today.

In its initial announcement of the rollout in February, Google said that Assistant would arrive for English speakers in the United States first. It will then roll out for English users in Australia, Canada, and in the United Kingdom. It will also arrive for German speakers in Germany around the same time.

If you already have access to Assistant, how often do you use it?
