Google Assistant for iPad cranks up Siri's competition

Google Assistant for iPad

Google Assistant is a free download from the App Store.

iPad users no longer have to use the 2x display mode when using Google Assistant on their Apple tablet.

Google Assistant has been out for some time now on Android and was welcomed to the iPhone a year ago. Of course, the iPad comes equipped with Apple's own Siri as its default assistant.

As you can see in the header image above, with iOS 11, iPad owners can multitask pretty well with an Assistant panel open alongside other apps. For instance, you can pull Google Assistant up as you work on something in another app or play a game. Like all digital assistants except Siri, the app must be manually opened on the iPad and can not be summoned in the background as on Android devices.
