    So I got Google Assistant on my Nexus 6p phone about two weeks ago. But I did 2 updates to the Google app recently thought the play store. Now Google Assistant is gone and back to Screen Search when I press and hold home button. Anyone experience this?
    Another thing is I am I'm Japan now on business trip... Could it be that it is disabled outside US?

    That's my guess. Assistant is only available in certain regions right now, and since you're outside those regions, Assistant isn't working.

    It seems very strange..... I did some research, and it may be also happening to other users.....

    It a combination of locale/language, only a fairly small subset is allowed.
    Based on the other "Assistant" thread, I tested this, and even switching to UK English (while it worked for awhile, correct accent and all) but located in the US, will disable it, over a period of hours.
    Switching back to US English (and being located in the US) will re-enable. Look at the other thread if you want to see my diatribe about the locale complexities and my hypothesis, based on working on similar systems.
