How to Use Google Assistant with Apple AirPods on Android? Google Assistant is a virtual personal assistant developed by Google and announced at its developer conference in May 2016. Unlike Google Now, the Google Assistant can engage in two-way conversations. Assistant initially debuted as part of Google’s messaging app Allo, and its voice-activated speaker Google Home. After a period of exclusivity on the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, it began to be deployed on other Android devices in February 2017, including third-party smartphones and Android Wear, and was released as a standalone app on the iOS operating system in May. Alongside the announcement of a software development kit in April 2017, the Assistant has been, and is being, further extended to support a large variety of devices, including cars and smart home appliances. The functionality of the Assistant can also be enhanced by third-party developers.
AirPods are wireless Bluetooth earbuds made by Apple Inc. They feature new user interactions; for example, removing an AirPod from one’s ear causes playback to pause and vice versa, and double tapping them can either activate Siri, or play or pause playback. For full functionality, AirPods require devices running iOS 10.2, macOS Sierra or watchOS 3 (and higher, respectively) and it automatically syncs through iCloud so that the user can switch to other supported devices signed in to the same Apple ID. They can also play audio from any device that support Bluetooth 4.0 or higher, Android devices can use the double tap gesture to control playback.
