So make sure all your Google apps are updates and let us know once you receive the Google Assistant on your Lollipop smartphone.

Now, for the first time, it's coming to Android M and N tablets. In addition, Android powered handsets running Android Lollipop (5.0) will be the recipient of an update that will add the virtual assistant.


Thanks to the latest word from Google, Assistant will soon be on a staggering amount of devices.

Announced back alongside the first generation Pixel smartphones, Google Assistant was exclusive to Pixel devices.

The Google Assistant will be rolled out to Android tablets, however, not all Android tablets will get the Assistant.

In select countries, users can even send money via voice on Google Assistant.

Android Oreo Go is basically an Android Oreo build custom-designed to run well on devices with 512 MB or 1 GB of RAM, as opposed to higher-end devices that come with up to 6 GB of RAM. It will be coming to more languages next year.
