The Google assistant is already compatible with the iPad

The Google assistant is already compatible with iPads, where it comes with a series of new features to improve the user experience.
Since mid-May of last year, we had the opportunity to enjoy the Google assistant on our iPhone, but it has not been until today when the big "G" has released its iPad version .
This version is compatible for both devices 9.7, 10.5 and 12.9 " , ie the entire range of iPad.

Characteristics of the Google assistant

Unlike the Android operating system, in iOS we find a series of limitations imposed by Apple, which does not allow us to have the same user experience as the "androids".
Even so, we can perform a series of interesting actions, in addition to interacting as if we did with Siri . Some of the examples are:
  • Quickly call a contact
  • Send text messages
  • To send e-mails
  • Create reminders
  • Check the agenda
  • Get directions
Of course, we can ask virtually anything , the Google assistant will do everything possible to give us an answer accordingly. If we ask "What can you do?" , The assistant himself will give us a series of recommendations about his abilities.
In the version for the iPad of 12.9 ", it is not fully optimized , since there are quite wide margins on the sides if we use it in horizontal mode. It does not influence its correct functioning, but it is somewhat unattractive.
Google Assistant
Among the limitations that we found, we verified how we can not invoke the assistant with a voice command if the application is not in the foreground, something with Siri if it is possible. But as we discussed, this is due to Apple's security restrictions .
We remember that the assistant of Google was already active in iOS, but only with iPhone devices, as we already told you in this other post .
