Still waiting for the Google Assistant Update? Here’s how to get it right now



Google announced that they are making the Google Assistant available for nearly all the smartphones running Android version 6.0 or above. This is a huge deal for most people since we have been waiting to use the Google Assistant natively within the OS instead of having to go to the Allo app. While the announcement was made a couple of days back, most people are still waiting for the update to hit their device, so that they can start using the service. If you are one of them and want to use the Google Assistant right now without having to wait, then you are in the right place.

First of all, there is a set of requirements which you need to aware of before starting the installation. In order for you to run Google Assistant on your smartphone, it needs to have a display with a resolution of at least 720 x 1280. Along with that, 1.5GB of RAM is also mandatory apart from running 6.0 Marshmallow or above version of Android. With that out of the way, we can now focus on getting the Google Assistant up and running on your smartphone.

The Google Assistant comes as a part of an update to Google Play Services and this is done to avoid update go through the manufacturer and carrier testing, etc. And hence, if you are tired of waiting, then all you have to do is, simply head over to the source link given down below and install the Google Play Services APK. You can follow the steps given below.

  1. Download the latest version of the Google Play services from the source link given below.
  2. Once you have downloaded the APK, simply copy it to the internal storage of your device.
  3. Now, the next step is to go to settings > security > Unknown sources > and check the box that allows you to install apps from 3rd party developers.
  4. Now, tap on the APK to open it and begin the installation of the same.
  5. Once the update finishes, the Google Assistant should be up and running.
