    I got my new Pixel 2 XL yesterday but Google Assistant is nowhere to be found.

    When I long press the home key, it brings up a Google search instead. Also when I use the squeeze feature, nothing happens.

    When I go to the calibration screen for squeeze, it only has the option for silencing incoming calls.

    It's like Assistant is not on the phone.


    EDIT: For some reason my phone was set originally to English (Netherlands) which is not supported by Assistant. Changed to English (United States) and now it works fine.

    Thanks!

    You didn't get an option to set up the assistant when you were setting up the phone?

    If you're using Pixel launcher, swipe right on your Home screen to open the Google app. Tap the 3 dots in upper right to open Settings.

    The first settings should be for Google Assistant.
