Samsung Galaxy Watch 4's Long-Awaited Google Assistant Update Is Here

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4’s Long-Awaited Google Assistant Update Is Here

The Galaxy Watch 4 debuted the new Wear OS codeveloped by Samsung and Google last year, but the Google Assistant was nowhere to be spurious. That changes Monday, as the Galaxy Watch 4 is now sketching access to the Google Assistant through the Google Play Store.

The update will funding the Google Assistant to live alongside Samsung’s Bixby assistant. The Google Assistant’s absence was considered a major omission when the examine launched. In my colleague Scott Stein’s Galaxy Watch 4 review, he noted the Google Assistant’s absence and other tweaks gave the examine a distinctly Samsung feel even though it developed the software in partnership with Google.

The Assistant’s arrival on the Galaxy Watch 4 comes once Google announced that its own Pixel Watch will be launching later this year. Even conception Google’s Pixel Watch may compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 on the hardware side, the Wear OS consuming system will continue to be developed by both companies. 

This newer version of Wear OS is also imagined to arrive to watches from Fossil, TicWatch and novel smartwatch-makers later in 2022.
