The search giant made the announcement recently during Google IO 2017, which raised a few eyebrows in the process as Apple would have had to approve the app for its platform. According to Google,  Assistant will have most of its features available on iPhone, from playing games and inquiring about facts to turning on and off your smart lights.

However, it is still unclear if the  Assistant on iOS will have the full suite of options that you get on Android, but we will find out more soon. To get the Assistant on your iPhone, you need to be running iOS 9.1 or above. In terms of a release date, the feature will start rolling out today.
