Google Assistant Comes to the iPad to Give Siri a Run For Her Money

To say feelings about Siri are mixed would be an understatement. Fortunately, we live in a world of infinite possibilities. Or, at least four possibilities. On top of Siri, Alexa, and Cortana, you can now use Google Assistant on your iPad if you want a different (or better) voice assistant.

The Google Assistant app has been out on iOS for a while, but it’s only been formatted for the iPhone. The newest update gives the app a proper tablet design, making use of all that extra space and, more importantly, lets tablet users dip their toe into Google’s smart ecosystem.

Like with other smart assistants, Google Assistant can’t integrate into the OS quite as fluidly as Siri does, but you can still put the app on your home screen and access it quickly and easily whenever you need it. To get Assistant on your tablet, install the app from the link below.
