With the arrival of Google Assistant with Google Pixel, android device users all over the world are now waiting for the update which will make Google Assistant available for all android devices. Google Assistance has been only limited for Marshmallow users and Nogat users for now. The long waited AI competitor for Siri is only available for a handful devices and Google has promised to launch the Google Assistant soon for other android versions too.
