Google Assistant is now officially available for Apple iPads

Established as one of the best AI assistants currently on the market, now Google Assistant is heading to Apple’s iPads to plank its flag on the Cupertino-based brand devices.

While its arrival is welcomed by users who love to enjoy the functionalities of AI in their everyday life, it doesn’t come without some hiccups.

Google’s competitor to Amazon’s Alexa is dominating the mobile devices segment due to its set of offerings and better integration with the OS, but in iOS case, in particular, this merge is not going to be as extensive as it is for Android users.

The API restrictions set on Apple’s mobile OS will allow it to perform a slew of actions including simple tasks like setting a reminder, turning on the light and it can even be used to make a video call or to send a text message, but not much more.

These limitations may change in the future, but that doesn’t seem likely in the near future.

Google Assistant’s arrival to iPads follows last year’s implementation to iPhones and shows how the AI solution continues to gain more presence across all platform and devices.

The internet giant AI app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and is available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish.
