Instead of Bixby I would like google assist and have access to all things google. Particularly drive were my work notes are stored.

    That's not native, so you'll have to do it, yourself.

    not going to get all things google. different operating systems. best you can do is to check the galaxy app store and see what is available.

    It's not out of the question. It's just not simple.

    I just got my Active2. I added Google Assistant to it. Really quite easy when you follow the steps. It took me less than ten minutes. My only wish is you didn't have to push a button to start it, but... I like the Active2 my next phone from my Pixel 3 will be Samsung.

    Thanks for the tip!
    I haven't done it, so I really don't know. My comment was more of, 'it's not just an app that is downloaded from the store'.
    I've gone back and forth on whether or not to install this on my watches.
    I've only tried S-Voice a couple times, on a watch and it's failed.


    ETA, I just looked at this again. It is almost as easy as just downloading an app. No love for my Gear Sport, though, due to no speaker onboard.
    First generate the secrets.json file using tutorial below:
    Video tutorial:
    Put it in a folder on your phone. Folder name does not matter. You need to browse to it later when setting up phone app.

    Install GAssist.Net app from Galaxy Store. Open Galaxy store and search for Gassist under the apps tab.
    Or, got to this link on your phone. https://galaxystore.samsung.com/gear...Tizen.Wearable

    After watch app is installed. Open it. Give it permissions. Watch will say "Companion app is not installed. Check your phone".
    The phone will light up and the Google Play Store will open to the Gassist companion app install page. Click install. Click open. Give it permissions and follow the authentication instructions.
