How to enable Google Assistant on any Android Smartphone running Android 7.0

Published

on

Probably the best feature showcased by Google on the October 4th event was the Google Assistant integration within the OS on the Pixel Smartphones. This feature shows how far Google has come with their AI advancement. But the sad news for other Android users is that the Google Assistant integration within the OS will not make it’s way to the other devices. Yes, it is exclusive to the Pixel smartphones only. So if you are using any other Android smartphone including the Nexus 6P, you will not get the goodness of the Assistant.

But hey, the best thing about Android OS is that it’s flexible. If you can’t get something from the manufacturers, you can get eventually by some or the other means. And thanks to developers, it is now possible to get the Google Assistant on any Android smartphone. Yes, the process might not be as easy as you would imagine but it is at least possible. So if you want to get the Google Assistant on your Android smartphone, then all you have to do is follow the steps given below. But first, let’s talk about some of the prerequisites for the same.

  • The first thing you will need is a smartphone running Android 7.0 or higher.
  • And make sure the device is rooted as well.
  • You will also need to install the latest Google App i.e. version 6.5.35.21 or higher

Once you have all the above, you can proceed with the steps and get the Google Assistant on your smartphone. But first, keep in mind that this procedure may or may not work at all. So it is pretty much hit or miss at this point. Hence if you are okay with that then you can go ahead and give it a shot. Also, if it worked for you, then there are chances that you might encounter issues while using it. With that being said, let’s proceed.

Okay so the only the thing you will need to do is, add the following line to the build.prop of your device to enable the Google Assistant on your phone:

“ro.opa.eligible_device=true”

Once you add it, save changes to the build.prop file and wipe the cache and the data of the Google App. Once you reboot the device after that, you will see Google Assistant feature now. If not, then wait for some time and reboot again. And as mentioned earlier, this may or may not work for you at all. So if you are up for it and are okay with the fact that it may or may work, then go ahead and give it a shot. There is another method to achieve the same and you can check that one out at the source link given below. And if you don’t want to go through all this hassle, then you can always go for either of Google Pixel smartphones. Do let us know if this worked for you and stay tuned for more details like this.
