What is Google Assistant?
Google Assistant is a voice-activated virtual assistant, first introduced by Google at the 2016 I/O conference in California. Much like Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, or Microsoft’s Cortana, the Google Assistant provides contextual information and performs actions such as booking a restaurant reservation or sending a message on behalf of the user. Smartphone users can also type requests to Google Assistant if they don’t want to use voice input.
