    OK, now how do I get it to go away?

    Now the home button long-press brings up a prompt for voice entry, and there's no setting I can find to bring up text entry or the Google Now feed. I can start the Google App from the launcher, which opens the familiar Google Now feed, and allows text entry.

    This update has rendered search almost useless to me. When I want to use voice, I say, "OK, Google." When i want to manually enter a search, I manually press the home button. Except now the shortcut for text search is gone. **** you, Google.
    Until they fix this you can go to language settings and change your default language to English us virgin islands. Google assistant does not support this language yet so the home button will now default back to google now with text entry options. There is also home2shortcut in the play store I have used in the past that lets you reprogram some buttons to launch the app you want.

    Still nothing for me, and I'm up to date on all software. I'm starting to feel like the kid who brought a bag lunch on pizza day.

    It just dawned on me that I did a manual restart (something I do weekly for maintenance) when I woke up this morning and also received the Assistant update. Not sure if it's just coincidence but if you're still waiting maybe give it a shot!

    Has anyone gotten the update while using the Play Services beta program?

    Just checked for GA and it's there. No update or anything. Just showed up out of the blue on my Verizon S7E.... Pretty cool.

    I was beginning to think the same thing...Is the beta keeping me from receiving it?

    What is the main difference between Google now and Google assistant? I've had Google assistant for a few days now and yet to use it.

    It's basically Google Now but has AI so it can keep the context of a conversation.

    I'm in the UK and I haven't received it yet. I have an s7 edge and got the android nougat update a couple of days ago, but no assistant.

    Well, I'm convinced. Not everyone is getting Google assistant. I've got 3 android devices and none have received it yet. I know that I should get it on all 3 at the same time because it will come down from my Google play store account, but what's the hold up?

    Question for the people who have had the update. Does it come as an app update in the store or does it just happen?

    It just happened for me. I went to use Google now and the assistant setup popped up.

    What is the main difference between Google now and Google assistant? I've had Google assistant for a few days now and yet to use it.
    Assistant is an evolution of Now/On Tap. First... the most obvious change is the interface when you launch the On Tap/Screen Search interface. Previously, it would give you a list of action icons.. stuff like finding a gas station or ATM, etc. Then it would search your screen and try to give you relevant information based on that. With Assistant, it alters the interface, moving to a voice based system rather than a touch based.

    The second main difference is a little bit more subtle and has to do with the voice interaction. With Now, it was relatively basic.... it would transcribe your query into a direct Google search and give you results. There were some commands, but they were a bit rigid and you had to know them to use them.

    With Assistant, Google enhanced things... rather that it transcribing your query into a Google search, it attempts to understand you in a more conversational tone. It is more able to interact with you when you use natural speech, and then also retains context. So when you ask "Are there any Thai restaurants near me?" After it gives you a list, you ask "When does it open?" and it will understand.

    Assistant attempts to improve on what a lot of people complain about.... rather than dictating commands, people want to speak in a natural way without having to memorize particular syntax and commands.
