Google Assistant for iPad Google Assistant for iPad

While it's a relatively safe assumption that most iPhone and iPad users prefer Siri to other AI assistants, there are always going to be some who are faithful to others. Starting today, iPad users will be able to use Google's personal digital assistant.

Google rolled out Google Assistant to iPhones previous year and it was only a matter of time before it expanded its virtual assistant to Apple's tablets as well. Not much, as Google obviously wants to keep the Assistant experience as similar as possible across both platforms. The iPad version will also support iOS 11's multitasking mode, so running apps side by side would be a breeze.

In addition to Android tablet support, Google's also rolling out the red carpet for the iPad. For instance, you can pull Google Assistant up as you work on something in another app or play a game. Other than that, it should be the same Assistant you know and love, capable of controlling your smart home, checking weather, calendar events, plus everything else. 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.

Google Assistant is now available as an iPad app, Google announced on Tuesday.
