    No, that's a launcher function... The Pixel's launcher. Which might be replacing the Google Now launcher at some point.

    Ahh, gotcha. I was looking forward to that being the new Google widget. Oh well, appreciate it.

    I received Google Assistant today. Here is what I can tell you as fact. It does not matter what device you have, where you live, what carrier you have or what Google App and Google Services version you have as long as they are current and you are running Marshmallow and above. It is all based on each individual Google account and each individual device within that account which dictates when Google Assistant is activated. It is activated on Google's server-side at any moment and at any time. Everyone is scheduled to receive assistant within the next 2 weeks. This information pertains to the U.S. I hope this information is helpful to everyone who is still waiting.

    I just got it. Finally! After days of checking this and updating that, I was about to go to bed and held down the home button and BOOM, there she was. I'm stoked to have it, but now I don't have anything else to look forward to, so I'm also kinda bummed out.

    It says Google assistant on the screen, but obviously it didn't update yet.
    It says "Google Assistant" because that's the topic that Google Now is addressing in that screen shot.

    I had to return my original S7 Edge under warranty and received my replacement S7 Edge 3 days ago. I was a little disappointed because it came with Marshmallow. So, I did the Nougat update and violá Google Assistant loaded up without me even noticing.
    So, maybe, just maybe, if you do a factory reset, you might get the Google Assistant update. Best of luck!

    You do not need to do a reset. Google is pushing it hard right now. That was just a coincidence.

    S7 should hopefully be getting it anytime now. I just received it on my Galaxy A5 (2016).

    got it this morning, Verizon, Texas. I know it doesn't matter, but some are asking about carrier and location.

    Oh, in due time. Google has already let it be known about how the Google Now Launcher is being deprecated... there was some gnashing of teeth, but the decision isn't being made in a vacuum. Google is simply greasing the wheels to roll out a new launcher that is more integrated with Google Assistant, as the Google Now Launcher was integrated into Google Now.

    Remember... Now, Google Assistant, On Tap/Screen Search... all the same stuff. We're just in the middle of one of the evolutions.

    If so, list your carrier and date update received! Patiently waiting for Google Play Services update...
    Got mine this morning ! No update or anything. Literally. Just held the home button and it was there.

    I'm on Verizon. Guess it rolls to everyone at different times. It works flawlessly. Great feature to have added along with the release of Android Nougat.

    So those who got Google Assistant, are you now using it daily or?

    I just want to understand what all the hype was about.

    I use it daily for settings calendar items, reminders, texting people, and especially calling people while driving.

    The hype was Google said something new was coming out. If you remember -- when the Pixel came out no one really cared about Assistant (except for Pixel owners). Google then announces it is coming to all phones so everyone wants it since it was stated that it was being released.

    Google Assistant is basically Google Now except it has some AI so it can understand the flow of a conversation versus issuing multiple "commands" for the same stuff. You can almost talk to it like a human and it will understand the flow. That is really it.

    Thanks a lot!

    Exactly the sort of answer I needed to fully understand this.

    So Google Now is more like MS DOS of Assistants while Google Assistant is like the Windows, more user friendly and the next step in Assistants bringing in machine learning etc...

    Once I get it I will give it a go especially for when driving. I tend to be very strict about using a phone on the road, and usually wait until I can pull over as I honestly cannot use a phone while driving at all, I just can't lol, it totally disorientates me.
