Google Assistant rolling out for Android Tablets and Android 5.0/5.1 Lollipop
Which tablets will get Google Assistant? Android 6.0 Marshmallow, with an active install base of 29.7 percent, is the most widely used version of Google's mobile operating system. Older phone owners were stuck with upgrading or going Assistant-less. As of December 11th, only 0.5% Android smartphones are running on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo, and the years-old Android Lollipop is still on 26.3% smartphones.
Besides some Android phones and tablets, Assistant is also available on Google Home and other smart speakers and appliances, iPhones, Google Allo, and Android Wear devices. Afterwards, Assistant will be accessible through a new Assistant app icon. That said, it's a welcome start for Google Assistant nonetheless, as, in theory, it covers more than half the active Android devices. As TechCrunch reported, users will first have to open the Google Assistant app before they make a request.
