Google's New Android Oreo Go Will Work Even On Low-End Phones


Google rolling out Assistant to more devices is not surprising.

Google has announced it's bringing its Assistant to more phones and tablets over the coming weeks. Assistant will be rolling out to all Android tablet users in the USA with the language set in English.

The Google Assistant was first designed for smartphones running Android 7.0 Nougat and later for Android 6.0 Marshmallow.




The update will also be rolling out to users in Italy, Japan, Brazil, Germany and Korea. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for latest tech news, daily deals, and reviews. The Assistant on Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones now supports Google Lens as well, which can identify objects, landmarks straight from the camera. Older phone owners were stuck with upgrading or going Assistant-less. For now, only the Android tablet users in the United States will receive the feature. While Android is the largest mobile operating system in the world, its ecosystem is way too much fragmented, with ancient Android iterations such as Jelly Bean and KitKat still running on 5.9% and 13.4% of devices respectively.

After the forthcoming rollout, Google assistant will reportedly be available to nearly 79.3% of users. Google also notes that Assistant on a tablet will be ideal to control smart devices like plugs and lights or ask about the weather. As such, for the past several months, Android tablets featured the old Screen search (Now on Tap) functionality when tapping and holding the home button. In India, Google had announced the Assistant for the JioPhone as well, which is a feature phone.

Kotlin is an official programming language within Android, and Google has now released Android Oreo, but you may be an aspiring programmer who doesn't yet know how to get started towards building your own Android apps.
