Along with launching new devices like the Pixel 8 lineup and the Pixel Watch 2, Google also announced Google announced “Assistant with Bard” for Android and iOS. The tech giant said that this feature will combine “Bard’s generative and reasoning capabilities with Assistant’s personalized help.” Google Assistant with Bard was introduced with the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro. Now, the feature is expected to extend to more smartphones.
According to a report by APK Insight (spotted by 9to5Google), Google is set to roll out Assistant with Bard to more smartphones. The report claims that the company is preparing itself to bring the AI-powered version of Google Assistant to Tensor-powered Pixel devices, as well as Samsung’s Galaxy S23 and S24. The report cites evidence discovered in version 14.41 of the latest beta version of the Google app.
Google Assistant with Bard: Availability
Last week, Google said that it will be rolling out Assistant with Bard to select testers shortly. The next phase, which will arrive in the coming months will also be an “opt-in experience.” Rumours suggest that this may roll out as a part of Google Labs like the Search Generative Experience (SGE).
The report suggests that Pixel 8 series smartphones might be the first devices to get the feature. Then, Assistant with Bard is likely to arrive in the Galaxy S24 lineup in 2024. After that, the feature is expected to come to older Tensor-based Pixels and the Samsung Galaxy S23 series before it becomes more widely available.
In its blog post, Google said that users will be able to access Assistant with Bard on “Android and iOS mobile devices” in the coming months. The company noted: “Assistant with Bard is still an early experiment, so we’re rolling it out to early testers soon to get their feedback before bringing it to the public.”
The report also notes that strings from Google app 14.41 include examples of sample queries users can ask.
