    As the title says, just wondering if any 6P users have gotten the Google Assistant update yet? I'm getting more curious about how I might or might not like it the more I wait/think about it.

    No, sorry, not yet. On my 6p, I am currently running nougat 7.1.2 which is bulletproof stable once again. Battery life is pretty darn good / phenomenal and memory usages awesome and smoothness throughout the OS is perfect. Maybe it's just me, but I do feel as though multi-window mode is much improved as well. And runs smoother and again more seamlessly and reliably. And Google Now voice recognition seems to be more reliable for voice feedback to.

    Been wondering about that myself also, especially since it's (supposedly?) rolling out this week, but I don't know of anyone who has gotten it yet...

    I keep checking for a "Google" app update. I'm thinking that the switch to Assistant may be coded in the update. Then again, I thought I might have read that the current Google app has some text coded to the affect of saying, "congratulations, you now have Google Assistant." Either way, I can't wait.

    Actually... I read it was to be rolled out via Play Services.

    I came here to ask the same thing. I keep getting lots of other updates for other google apps, but not for THE Google App.

    But isn't that the same thing? Doesn't that just mean that it will be updated via Google Play? It will still be an update to the Google app.

    Yes, and I'm enrolled in the Google app beta version as well.

    So I check the Play Store and I see there's an update for the Google app. I'm excited because I'm thinking this must be the update to Google Assistant. It updates aaaaaaaaand it's still the regular Google app. Am I missing something (good chance I am, but...)?

    I seem to recall reading that it gets enabled on the server side, hence the "rolled out through Play Services". Play Services is the framework that underpins much of how the Google apps work.

    That makes perfect sense as well. NO need to look for updates via play store.

    Technically, no. Play Services is designed to update things on your phone that are not distinguished by entries in the app drawer.

    Ahhh, okay, thanks (says the not so technically savvy guy)...

    I'm guessing it has to be done on the server side or requires an update to Google play services. As of now I have the most up-to-date version of play services and just downloaded the update for the Google App. I've cleared cache restarted and have nothing new @ all so I'm back to just waiting for Google to get around to us lowly 6p users.

    I'm running both beta versions of the Google app and Play services. Still no Assistant. Patiently waiting as well.

    Thanks for the clarification folks. That does make sense. Still waiting for them to flip the switch.

    I am running he 7.1.2 beta and have the beta of Google Play Services. I was excited last night when after a restart I got a welcome screen for Google Assistant after holding the home button. But a few seconds later, I was taken back into Google Now. The software is clearly onboard. It seems we're just waiting for the button to be pressed in Mountain View.

    Looks like I got it about 2 hrs ago. I don't get auto updates (I have to request them). It's been awhile, so went to Play Store & about 30 were available. Got them all & I think assistant was part of some Google app. There is a difference from google now but I don't really use now & will probably only use assistant occasionally. I am on 7.1.2 Beta

    I may be missing something, but Google assistant seems to be just a slightly improved version of current "OK Google" functionality.

    That's exactly what it is. It's an evolution of Google's search. They took On Tap, enhanced it's voice control, etc.
