been enjoying the app Google called Google Assistant (GA).
of the Google app (v6.13) seems to be working on devices that aren’t supposed
to have Google Assistant yet. The screenshots below were taken on a Nexus 6P
(running Android 7.1.1) and a Samsung Galaxy Note5 (running Android 6.0.1).
to Android Police report, the version enables some features that had previously
been seen in testing like a page of recent search topics and lite mode. There
is also a process to add payment information for use with Google Assistant.
the GA app: After installing v6.13, the Google Assistant can be enabled by
holding the Home button as if to launch
Now on Tap. A dialog will be displayed with the message “New! You just
got the Google Assistant” and begin the setup process for voice training.
Nexus 6P refuses to behave this way, so it’s only down to speculation what set
of conditions need to be met.
but be sure to read the warnings first.
