You can download the Google Assistant app on iOS here.

Overall, the Google Assistant redesign is focused on making it easier to interact with Assistant using both your voice and your hands.

As the images show, users get access to a clean interface with prominent visual elements, such as videos, weather info, info cards for places, direct access to apps and sharing options, and more. However, after making its way to phones, smart displays, and whatever else Google can cram its assistant into, being forced to use your voice to access a lot of GA features hasn't always offered the best experience. Smart home device owners likewise can easily adjust their devices from Google Assistant using large dials and sliders; these can be used for things like volume. Paid digital goods are thus far only available in the USA, but Google said that it plans to roll them out in additional countries soon. With Assistant open, just swipe up-this will open the Overview interface, with information about your day and your recent Assistant commands.
