    How do I know I get it or not? My google app is at 7.1.29.21, but can't find the option to enable Google Assistant in settings.

    I've had Google Assistant for a few weeks now. I use it frequently.

    To check if your phone has Google Assistant long press the home button. A page will pop up saying, "Hi, how can I help."

    I definitely don't have that... so I guess I have to rely on Rogers to push the update over, which could be in months.

    I'm on Rogers and I have it. I use it daily when I'm driving. "OK Google, navigate me home" "OK Google, open Spotify" you can call people, send text msgs. I have had it for about a month now.

    I have OK Google, where I say "OK Google" and able to search things and get my phone to launch apps etc, but when I press and hold the home button it's still showing as Google Now with no option in settings for assistant

    Do we just have to sit and wait for the long hold press to change to Google Assistant?
    OK Google is pretty decent though, set up my voice with it so any screen I am on I can ask it to launch apps and tell me whats in my diary for today etc.

    Any idea when we will see Google Assistant in UK?

    Turn your system default language to English(US) and tap and hold home button while connected to internet. You will get Google Assistant. Later you may change back to any other language, your Assistant will stay.

    I can do that too, I believe that's always there in Google Now.

    I think the difference between Google Assistance and Okay Google is, Google Assistant understands context. So you may ask ask about a movie, then ask about who stars in it, and then get the showtime, then get the nearest theatre, all without repeating the movie name.

    But again, I have never tried it so don't know how far they have improved Google Assistant in that regard.

    Am I right about this?

    For some reason, Google Assistant stops working often..the microphone doesn't work (S7 E). Restart doesnt work. Do i need to uninstall S Voice? They've both worked before. Dont know what keeps changing.

    I have S voice and Google Assistant and haven't had any problems with either one. What language are you using?

    I have this issue too. There is another thread on the forum about this but no responses there as well. For me it's not just Assistant but the actual Google App that stops working simultaneously.
