Google Maps Go is the latest lightweight Android app

Google Assistant is finally being rolled out to Android tablets running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and newer versions, as well as smartphones running on the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system. Now all the people who are using smartphones running Android Lollipop will get Google Assistant very soon in their devices.

Google had first introduced Assistant on the Pixel and Pixel XL devices in October 2016.

The late release of Assistant is a nice addition for the 26.3 percent of Android users on the three-year-old OS, but it shows a weakness in the way Google updates its software. Google Assistant has started rolling out to users with the language set to English in the U.S., UK, India, Australia, Canada, and Singapore, as well as to Spanish user in the U.S., Mexico, and Spain. It's also rolling out to users in Italy, Japan, Germany, Brazil and Korea. However, that will be changing in the coming week for tablets running Marshmallow or above.

That's why Brady offered his support for Manning in the wake of the Giants' decision to start Geno Smith this week. That remains to be seen, but for right now, he's having another MVP-level season while Manning struggles in NY .

Key to the low effect of the application is that it's not by any stretch of the imagination an application by any means - the application icon is a connection to a Progressive Web App (PWA) rendition of Google Maps. The company's voice search interface exists on phones, watches, TVs, cars, and in standalone smart speakers, but the company has never done a great job of capturing the entire 2 billion-strong Android market.

Google Maps Go app has been made available to download on the Play store in India.

In separate news regarding another version of Android, Google has come up with Google Maps Go for the Android Go. At the event, Google also announced Google Files Go app and said that a lighter version of Google Maps was also on its way. The app will be available exclusively for Android smartphones running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher and with a RAM capacity of 1GB or lower.
