WWDC 2018 Apple iPhone iOS 12

Google rolled out Google Assistant to iPhones a year ago and it was only a matter of time before it expanded its virtual assistant to Apple's tablets as well.

Google's iOS app Google Assistant officially added native iPad support today, bringing the tablet's number of major Siri competitors up to three. However, for users who like the Google Assistant over Apple's Siri, the launch on iPad will be a welcome move.

So, what's changed in the jump from iPhone to iPad? Also, the iPad version of the Assistant also supports iOS 11's multitasking mode, which allows it to run side-by-side with other apps on Apple's tablet.




Assistant for iPad will work same as in iPhone. With Google Assistant on the iPad, users will be able to set reminders and calendar events, ask for answers to questions, check the weather, and even control smart home accessories. More screen real estate simply means that you don't have to exit one app just to hop into Google Assistant.

Google has started rolling out Assistant for iPad and it will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish languages. Microsoft released an iPad-optimized version of Cortana last month, after Amazon's Alexa ranked third overall in iPad App Store downloads during the 2017 holiday season.
