Google Assistant is finally available on the Samsung watch


Samsung has announced that the digital assistant, considered by many to be the best in the business, Google Assistant, can finally be installed on the Galaxy Watch 4. The functionality has been expected for several months now.

In Europe, After months and months of patiently waiting, Samsung is finally rolling out an update for the Galaxy Watch 4 that adds Google Assistant to the smartwatch. Since its launch last fall, the Galaxy Watch 4 has established itself as one of the best smartwatches out there.

This was Samsung’s first watch with Wear OS in years, with Samsung opting for Tizen in previous generations, but Google Assistant was not included at launch Recently, a software update from US carrier Verizon was revealed to include support for Google Assistant, telling users that the Korean giant was about to add the voice assistant to its watches. Samsung had also quickly confirmed the imminent arrival of the feature in a video on YouTube.

How do I download Google Assistant on Galaxy Watch 4?

Google Assistant for Wear OS 3 is now available for download from the Google Play Store and can be launched from the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic app menu. However, you can also use voice commands to open the Google Assistant or reprogram the watches’ home button as a shortcut. Indeed, as with Bixby, activating Google Assistant on the watch can be done with the home button† You have to dive into the settings and configure it by changing the activation method. When you’re done, you can press and hold the home button to open the wizard at any time.

Samsung clarified that: Google Assistant is currently available in only 10 different regions, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It’s also important to note that the new watch update not only adds Google Assistant to the Galaxy Watch 4, but also other apps from Google such as Google Maps, Google Pay, and Apple Music.
