Siri rumored to get new competition — right on your iPhone
Move over, Siri: your iPhone might soon welcome another AI assistant into the iOS fold.
Google could throw the smartphone world for a loop at this week’s I/O developers conference and unveil new Google Assistant functionality for the iPhone, according to Bloomberg. The report, which cites “a person familiar with the matter,” claims the Assistant-to-iOS news could be announced as early as the first day of the event.
Assistant will come to the iPhone in the form of a free iOS app, the source said, and will depend on voice commands to work with other Google apps installed on users’ phones.
