Google Nexus smartphones to get Google Assistant in next update :- Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones with the Google Assistant AI on board had left many wondering if the virtual assistant will make its way to Nexus smartphones. A few months later, the Google Assistant might arrive in some Nexus smartphones soon.
The Pixel and Pixel XL are the only smartphones that have Google Assistant integration while the virtual assistant powers Google’s Home device and can be found in a slightly different version of the Allo app of Google.
Google Assistant is the search giant’s competitor to various other AI assistants available on the market, including Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri and Window’s Cortana, which is seeing integration on the smartphone of the Huawei and various other applications.
A major update is touted to arrive soon for Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X smartphones, bringing Google Assistant, which is based on Google Now with expanded Ok Google features. Senior Editor at 9to5 Google – Stephen Hall tweeted on Twitter that Google would bring Assistant in the next ‘major’ update.
This means the virtual Artificial Intelligence(AI) might not arrive in the beta Android 7.1.2 release for Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, which recently rolled out to the Pixel device, but not these two phones, Google Assistant could possibly arrive with Android 8 later this year which is certainly a long wait then.
