Google is planning to launch Assistant on iOS sooner rather than later

Google CEO Sundar Pichai talks about the Google Assistant, which will power the company's new line of smartphones and a voice-activated speaker.

There is some good news for iOS users who hate using Siri and want a competent option for voice actions on their iPhones and iPads. A new confident report from Android Police suggests that the release of Google Assistant on iOS is “imminent” with there even being a possibility of an announcement at Google I/O 2017.

It’s unknown exactly how Google plans to implement Assistant, meaning it will likely be a mixture of how it’s used in Allo and how the full-featured version works on Android. This news is huge, as Google is continuing to look for developers to expand the capabilities and usefulness of Assistant.

If you remember, a few weeks ago, Google opened its Assistant SDK for any developers to being building devices to use Assistant. Since then, we have seen a few implementations which add Assistant to MacOS devices, in an effort to replace Siri altogether.

Hopefully, Apple doesn’t act like a stick in the mud and reject the official Assistant app from launching onto the App Store. However, maybe there’s a chance we can see a large update to the Google Search app which will include Assistant proper.

We’re sure there are a few iOS users out there that still check out Phandroid, so sound off in the comments and let us know whether you are looking forward to this integration on iOS.
