If the rollout of Google Assistant to more devices got you excited as a tablet owner, there's some bad news. Google has confirmed that the handy tool will not be making its way to tablets.

Last month the company said that Google Assistant was on its way to all Android smartphones running Marshmallow and above, but didn’t make reference to tablets one way or the other. But now it has been made clear that tablets are not in line for the upgrade -- at least not for the time being.

There had been speculation that the failure of Google to mention tablets was fairly indicative of what was going to happen (or not happen), but now we know for sure. In a statement issued to Android Police, Google said:

The Assistant will be available on Android Marshmallow and Nougat phones with Google Play Services, this does not include tablets.

So if you've been eagerly looking out for a new update, you can stop wasting your time. That's not to say that Google won’t change its mind at some point, but for the foreseeable future your tablet will remain Google Assistant free.

Xda have a sideloaded version that works with nova. I have it but still trying to work out really what to use it for. I don't find it that amazing.

I use it together with Google Voice Access to try and control my device entirely with my voice.
