Google Assistant to be available on Nexus in later update

Latest Android 7.1.2 Feature Lets You Decide Where to Place Liveā€¦

But things are about to change because Google is rolling out the feature to the Nexus devices as well.

Google Assistant is one of the highlights of Pixel smartphones.

The Now launcher lets you swipe right from the home screen to get straight to your Google Now cards, and the move is another sign of Google switching its focus to the Google Assistant instead - its latest phones come with a revamped launcher called the Pixel launcher, which features the Google Assistant front and center. 9To5Google reporter Stephen Hall recently took to Twitter to announce that he was informed about the arrival of the voice assistant to the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P via an upcoming "major" update.

Google Pixel and Pixel XL were the first phones to come with Google Assistant. Owing to user requests, Google recently introduced Pixel's "fingerprint swipe" gesture to Nexus 5X. So far, it is only available to the Nexus 5X.

Though it wasn't available officially on the non-Pixel phones, there are several workarounds for making Google Assistant work on the unsupported devices.

Have you been waiting to get your hands on the new Pixel Launcher?

In fact it has proved so popular it has been downloaded more than 50 million times, with users who do not like the interfaces from Android smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung, Huawei and HTC choosing the Google Now Launcher for a cleaner, more intuitive and all round better Android experience. Many Android fans were disappointed to know that Google Assistant is exclusive to Pixel phones and expressed their concerns as to why other Android phones can not have the same features.

What do you think about expanding the availability of the Google Assistant? It looks like Google is now granting their wish.

However, the premium device, Google Assistant is good in understanding the context; users will have to pay a great price to use it. It's a win-win situation for Google now.
