Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 has undoubtedly been one of the company’s most popular devices. It features some impressive internal specs, and runs on Google’s Wear OS, although it lacks the Google Assistant functionality that comes on a lot of other Wear OS devices. That may all change soon, according to a new statement from the company.
An official press release from Patrick Chomet, EVP and Head of Customer Experience Office at Mobile eXperience states that the highly sought-after feature will soon be a reality on the Korean company’s current batch of wearable devices.
His statement reads “As we celebrate one year of collaboration and success, we’re opening up the ecosystem even further by bringing new experiences and benefits to Galaxy Watch4 users. This summer, I’m excited to share that Galaxy Watch4 users will be able to download Google Assistant to their device, featuring faster and more natural voice interactions, enabling quick answers and on-the-go help.”
Google and Samsung have been working together more often for the past few years, especially on developments surrounding Wear OS. More recently, Google announced that its Health Connect API for Android is currently being developed in collaboration with Samsung.
No specific release schedule has been given for the Google Assistant update, so Galaxy Watch owners and Wear OS fans will have to wait a bit for further announcements from the company.
