Google Assistant now features native support for the Apple iPad
Thanks to an update to the Google Assistant for iOS app, the digital assistant now supports the Apple iPad. The UI is the same as the one found when Google Assistant is downloaded on an iPhone, but is designed to cover the the entire 7.9-inch to 12.9-inch screens that adorn different iPad models. Keep in mind that Apple will only allow a third-party assistant like Google Assistant, Cortana and Alexa to work when the app is open. Of course, the iPad comes equipped with Apple's own Siri as its default assistant.

With Google Assistant, users can get the weather, news, sports scores, stock prices, set reminders, add calendar appointments, and find out answers to various questions. Why would iPad users want to use a third-party digital helper? Because some surveys have found Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa to be superior to Siri.

Google Assistant for iOS is a free download from the App Store. To install it on your iOS powered tablet, click on this link.
