    there's nothing to do more than updating the Google Play Services:
    APKs:
    Google Play services APKs - APKMirror
    if you don't know which apk to download use this app(Play Services Info):
    Play Services Info APKs - APKMirror

    What version includes assistant? 10.2.99 doesn't. And the newer beta isn't compatible with the Note 5 yet.

    I am running the newest beta 10.5.37 and still no assistant. From what i have read, google has to turn it on and push it out. It is not as simple as loading the newest apk.

    OK.. first... relax. Google stages rollouts of major updates to their software so they don't break everyone's phones.

    Second, the only thing you are accomplishing by manually updating your software is saving yourself a minute or two of time. Google needs to approve Assistant on their end before you will see it on your phone, and since that process also involves automatically pushing any necessary updates to your phone, getting the updated Play Services, etc. would get taken care of then.

    Another option is to download Allo. That has GA built in.

    Patience, my friends.

    The Assistant is actually there. Google has to enable it on their end before you can see it, though.

    It does, but it is confined to Allo. If that app isn't open, assistant gets over-ridden by Google Now.

    If you get lucky, the recent Google update may enable Assistant.

    Though it's still a server-side thing as when I got the update, it was still Now-On-Tap, and shortly afterwards, Google Assistant was available.

    I updated my Play Sevices and it broke a bunch of Google Apps. Had to roll it back, also no assistant.

    I got it now! There was nothing to download in the app store, you just long press the home and it shows a message saying that you now have Google Assistant.

    What version of play services do you have? Or does it matter?

    At this point, it doesn't matter.

    You may have the latest version of Play Services, but it is still dependant on your Google account, meaning that it's a server-side switch.

    I long pressed the home button this morning and there was Assistant. Nothing was needed to be done on my part.

    Still waiting here. Wonder if my tinkering trying to force it pushed me to the back of the line. Lol.

    I'm AT&T Note 5 in Alabama and found Google Asst already Inst'd from the Hm Button Long Press.
    You have to give permission for them to sleep, shower, and drive with you but for most I'm sure it's worth it.

    Verizon Note 5, running stock Android 6.0.1 (with latest February 1, 2017 security update).
    Just got it an hour ago!
    I didn't do anything special, just updated my Google app via the play store a few days ago (now its version 6.13.25.21.arm64). I never got any play services update or notification. I kept on holding down the home button once in a while though. Like the moderators said, it is definitely a server side "switch."

    I have it on my AT&T Note 5 as of yesterday and... how do I get rid of it. I don't want to talk to my phone like that. I work in an office and don't care to let everyone around me know my business.

    My main beef is that I've lost the quick access button that Now On Tap had to create a reminder.
