Anybody got Google Assistant enabled on their devices yet?

... It should have started rolling out by now. Anyone? If so, which devices have you got it running on?

Not on the Samsung s6.

 

You CAN actually get it on any device right now.  You need to set your device language to English US.  Then you must go to the Google app on the Google play store.  Scroll to the bottom and sign up to the developer version.  Wait a while for it to update and you'll have the Google assistant.  However, be warned.  The US version didn't understand my English accent of "Ok Google" until I did my best impression of an America...  Also, the moment you turn you language back to normal it'll "update" to "downgrade" the app.

When you say not on the S6... Does that mean it's NOT going to get it? I thought it was rolling out to all devices running Marshmallow or higher. Smiley Frustrated

I didn't mean that, but it's come out anyways.  Got it around 4 days ago.  12th April update enabled Google assistant for me.  It only appears when holding the home button, opposed to pressing voice search.

 

This is without changing my phone's language or being in the beta programme.

Has it been rolled out to your device? You can easily check if you have it
by long pressing the home button.

Hi @Yellowmatic

 

It does talk about it on the HTC Website but them I can't find anything about it in the spec?

 

I found this really good article that advises you just need to say 'OK Google' or press and hold the Home Key.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Thanks - Karen. Smiley Happy

In theory when you long press the home button GA should ask how can I help you, however I still get GoogleNow

Have you ever used the Edge Sense yet.

 

It seems the current app it opens is Google Assistant.

 

Just squeeze the edge of the phone. If this is not set up then go to settings to set up.

I have indeed but that just opens google now. Checked ALL settings, nowhere can it be found, only google now. Very odd!

Hi @Forrest675

 

It might be worth getting in touch with HTC Support.
