Google's new Assistant Go is AWESOME ! Here's how/where to get it !


NEW DELHI : If you have been tracking developments in the technology world, then you must be aware that search behemoth Google last month took the wraps off its Android Oreo (Go Edition) operating system. Along with that the firm launched a bunch of 'Go' edition apps, which are the lighter version of original apps such as Maps, Search, YouTube and others. While many of them have made their way to Google Play Store, the newest to hit the Android app store is Google Assistant Go .

As the name suggests, Assistant Go is the lighter version of the Google Assistant, optimised for Android Oreo (Go Edition) smartphones. The AI performs pretty much the similar functions as the regular version but is slightly more customised for India when it comes to search results. At the same event, the company also introduced a Reliance JioPhone-exclusive version of Google Assistant.

Although the app has been made live on Google Play Store, it is not yet available for all. It also comes pre-installed on Android (Go Edition) devices. The app is currently available in eight languages - English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, and Thai. Support for more languages will be rolled out soon.

As mentioned on the app's description page, some of the features that Google Assistant Go can carry include :

-Make quick phone calls on the go ("Call Sameer")
Send text messages ("Text Sara I am running late")

-Play music ("Play some jazz on YouTube")

-Navigate places ("Get me directions to the nearest coffee shop")

-Preview your upcoming events ("Tell me about my day")

-Weather information ("Do I need an umbrella today?")

-Answers ("How tall is Mount Everest?")

However, some of the features missing with the Assistant Go app that are present in the regular version are reminders, controls for smart home devices, Actions on Google, and Device Actions.
