Google Assistant for Wear OS 3 may be downloaded from the Google Play Store and opened from the app menu on the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic. However, you also access Google Assistant with voice commands or program the watch’s home button as a shortcut.
The deployment of the Google Assistant is also one of the finest factors of Samsung’s move from Tizen to Wear OS for the Galaxy Watch 4 series.
However, Google’s recognized virtual assistant was not immediately available, and it decided to stay away from the Watch 4 series for a long period.
The Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic are two of the most famous Wear OS smartwatches. They’re also the only watches with Wear OS 3 pre-installed.
Despite running Wear OS, moreover, the Galaxy Watch 4 series appears to lack one of the best Wear OS functionalities: Google Assistant, leaving users with Samsung’s Bixby assistant. Although, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 has now Google Assistant support.
Customers in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan are reportedly able to use Google Assistant right now.
“Officially launching from today, Galaxy Watch 4 users can download Google Assistant on their devices, allowing them access to accelerated, more natural voice interactions, quick answers to questions, as well as on advice.” Consumers will also have access to advanced voice assistant capability directly from their wrists with access to both Bixby and Google Assistant,” according to Samsung’s official statement.
There was some expectation that Google or Samsung will make an announcement during the I/O 2022 keynote. While confirmation was received, it was hardly the positive news that Watch 4 owners were hoping for.
