Explicit Android tablet support was also added, which brings parity to today's announcement that the Google Assistant is now supported on the iPad, too. The Google Assistant iPad app is a tablet-specific version with support for a larger screen, as well as support for portrait and landscape mode. My biggest problem with the Assistant is not exclusive to Google's AI, (I have this complaint about Siri and Amazon's Alexa as well) but nevertheless, there's a discoverablity problem.

In addition to Android tablet support, Google's also rolling out the red carpet for the iPad. Other than that, it should be the same Assistant you know and love, capable of controlling your smart home, checking weather, calendar events, plus everything else. For instance, you can pull Google Assistant up as you work on something in another app or play a game.

So, if you're an Apple user who happens to enjoy Google's services, you now have more options when it comes to using Google Assistant on iOS.

While the earlier version of Google Assistant on iOS was available only in English, Google says in a blog post that the new version will be available in other languages including French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish. The app has been updated to automatically fit all iPad model displays.
