According to the report, the Google Assistant will launch as a “free, standalone app,” available for download from the Apple App Store. However, it is not yet clear the native app carries the Google Assistant name. But, it is known the AI app will integrate with other Google applications installed on users’ iPhones.

The Google Assistant iPhone app includes enhanced AI capabilities and Google reportedly will also enable the creation of the physical “coffee table books” through the native mobile app.

Additionally, Google will install its AI assistant on GE home appliances. “Google is also integrating its Assistant into GE home appliances such as refrigerators, dishwashers, ovens, washers and dryers. Users will be able to ask the Assistant how many cleaning pods are left in the dishwasher, or tell it to pre-heat the oven to 350F, or ask if the laundry is clean,” the report states.

At the end of April, the Google Home Assistant beat out its competitors — Microsoft Cortana, Apple Siri, and Amazon Alexa in a study. However, Siri mobile search is the nearest competitor to Google search, another report claims. Also in April, the Google Maps timeline rolled out to iOS users.
