Google Assistant is only available for two smartphones right now, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. But we’ve heard that the Assistant will probably come to other new phones, such as the LG G6. If you’re a beta tester of Google’s search app for Android, you can get an alpha version of the app that will give you Google Assistant. This means that people can get Google’s AI assistant without a Pixel or Pixel XL. This doesn’t seem to work with all phones, but, Nexus 6P and Alcatel Idol 4s users have managed to do it.
The alpha version of the Google app also introduces a Lite mode that will optimize websites to use less mobile data. You’ll also be able to buy things via the Assistant, but first, you’ll need to set up your payment and delivery information. However, because it’s an alpha build, the features don’t really work yet.
The alpha version seems to be pretty buggy and crashes often, so keep that in mind if you want to download it. We should probably wait a while before Google releases a stable version of this app. Do you think that the Google Assistant should come to more phones?
