    It's not assistant. That's just an update to google now.
    That's what I said. I still HAVEN'T received it on any of my devices including my S7 edge.

    Is it just going to come with a regular general app update?

    I just checked by long pressing the home button after seeing this thread and it looks like I have it now.

    That's the (old) Google Now giving you info about Google Assistant since that's what's it's seeing on your screen right now (this forum thread about it)

    Ok, I assumed that was it because someone else posted the same screenshot thinking that was it.
    Yeah this is what assistant looks like.

    Not me. Not on any of my 3 devices due to get it. I did read an article yesterday in which Google confirmed that it could take weeks before we see it.

    It looks like Cortana. Is it that useless?

    Want Google Assistant now instead of waiting for it to arrive? Here's how to do it

    This link will get you there, but I'm not sure which one to download. I know which version, but not sure about the architecture or dpi.

    Ok, it seems that no one who is updating Google play services with this method (APK mirror) is actually getting Google assistant to work. Guess we just have to wait.

    Even if you have the right software versions, you won't get Assistant until Google whitelists your device on their end. There is no way to speed that process up. Manually updating is a waste of time since Google would update you when they approved you.

    With so many people on multiple forums with an S7e that have yet to receive the update, it seems like Google has dropped the ball on this one. I don't have numbers to prove it, but I'm pretty sure the large majority of phones in the US running the required version of Android to receive this update are Samsung. It seems to me that a company like Google would push an update like this much harder to those phones...I'm scratching my head a bit on this one, especially since they made a specific announcement of the release and nobody seems to have it yet.

    They are being smart. This is a fairly substantial update that will be pushed to countless different models of phones and flavors of Android.... and it is impossible for Google to test all those different combinations. If they just hit a button and pushed it to everyone with a 6.0+ phone, and some sort of defect popped up and screwed up people's phones for a bit while they hashed out a fix, the headlines would all be blasting Google for being irresponsible and breaking stuff.

    Apple gets in trouble with this all the time... they go hell bent for glory on every update and push it out to the world, and a ton of phones inevitably get screwed up in the process and people start pulling their hair out for a day or two while they rush to push out a fix. So Google takes a more cautious approach to mitigate risk.
