Google's slim Assistant Go app is now available for slower phones

Though Android Oreo (Go edition) is yet to make its official debut, Google has launched the lightweight version of its virtual assistant, dubbed as Google Assistant Go, on Google Play. Google notes that the number of apps falling into this category is not large, but they are hard to detect because the bad actors behind them go the "extra mile" to hide the real objective of the apps. Just to keep everyone updated, the giant has released plenty of Android Go applications in the past.

Google announced its Android Oreo (Go Edition) at "Google For India" event in India past year.

As Google rolls out Android Oreo to devices at its usual slow pace, it continues to work on the next iteration of Android.

Unlike the original version of Google Assistant, this streamlined version of the app will not have all the features.

During 2017, Ahn says Google took down more than 700,000 apps that were somehow violating Google Play policies or potentially creating problems for end users. However, the Go variant is nearly similar to the regular app version, offering nearly all features. Yes, you will be able to use your own voice to give commands and it will work like that. The app presently supports a bunch of worldwide languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, and Thai. Reminders, control for smart home devices, Actions on Google, and device actions are some of the features missing in this latest app.

Conte has been linked with a return to Italy as national team boss, however recently clarified his intentions in regard to his future.

Android Go is essentially a lightweight version of Android geared towards devices with limited RAM (512MB to 1GB) and weaker hardware in general. Google was also confident that their model of identifying Google Play policy violators "made it more hard for bad actors to create new accounts and attempt to publish yet another set of bad apps".

As long as you have a Go-powered device, Google Assistant Go is available on the Google Play Store right now. These apps occupy less space and load faster compared to the regular versions. The Gboard Go app is for low-power low-powered Android smartphones. In India, homegrown smartphone maker Micromax said it would launch Bharat Go in Jan'18, but it hasn't announced anything yet.

Google Assistant Go is meant to be compatible with smartphones or devices that are, by default, on Android Go Edition.

Earlier this week, announced its partnership with Reliance Jio to.
