Google Assistant on iPhone.

Google Assistant is finally headed to the iPhone. Having Apple’s Siri already as a competitor, Google at its I/O conference announced that the company will roll out Assistant as a separate iOS app from Google search.

However, Google Assistant will work differently than how its works on Android devices. Google says because there are API restrictions, Google Assistant on iOS will only be able to do general stuff like send iMessages and play a song on your Spotify app, but not set alarms.

And since there is no option to remap Home button from Siri to Google Assistant, the Assistant is expected to be just like another app in an iPhone.
