Google Assistant has been available on recent Android phones for a while. However, that still puts it out out of reach of many Android users when a whopping 46.5 percent of active Android users are running a version older than Marshmallow. To help address this, Google is making Assistant available on devices running Android Lollipop. If you're still rocking an older phone, you'll get the same AI helper as a shiny new handset.
The Google Pixel Buds are getting some useful features. Soon, users of the Pixel Buds wireless earphones will be able to take advantage of new features that can be easily done with just a couple of taps. Google is adding three features in the latest update to the Pixel Buds. The first feature is an easy way to turn the Pixel Buds on and off. To do this, users will simply have to triple tap on the right earbud.
It's fitting, in a way, that Google's new Pixel phone resembles the iPhone. Apple's world-changing gadget is the very device Google is aiming for with. The 5-inch Pixel and 5.5-inch Pixel XL are meant to be the best, most powerful, most unified Android phones ever. They have best-in-class specs, best-in-class design, best-in-class everything. And for the first time, Google seems to want you to buy one.
