Nicholas Sutrich 17 Oct 2019 4 Source: Android Central Yes, you read that right. In a move that closely mirrors the way Google handled two-button navigation on the Pixel 3, gestural navigation will be required to use the new Google Assistant on the Pixel 4. Folks who prefer three-button navigation will be stuck with the old, slower Google Assistant according to posted documentation and Google spokespeople. Google representatives didn't indicate to Android Police whether this decision could change in the future. We've seen timed exclusives for features on Pixel phones in the past, and while the new Google Assistant is Pixel 4-only for now, it's also far more limited than originally thought. If you prefer to use 3-button navigation on the Pixel 4, Google Assistant will need to make a … [Read more...] about Pixel 4’s super fast new Google Assistant only works with gesture navigation

Jason England 13 Dec 2019 1 Source: Android CentralWhat you need to know The new next-gen Assistant is now available in five new countries in English. The new countries include Australia, Canada, Ireland, Singapore, and the UK. Google made the next-gen Assistant ten times faster by condensing it down and running it locally on the phone. Back in May of 2019, we got our first look at Google's "new Assistant." While showing it off on stage, one of the main benefits was the huge increase in speed it would bring to the experience. Google accomplished this by condensing Assistant from over 100GB worth of algorithms down to only 500MB, enough for it to run locally on your phone instead of in the cloud.

Android can be confusing. There are a lot of different versions, and many of them are still running on devices today. Keeping up with the latest version can be a challenge, but fret not—we have you covered. RELATED: Fragmentation Isn't Android's Fault, It's the Manufacturers' Major Android versions are generally released once per year (though it wasn’t always like this), with monthly security updates released in between. Occasionally, Google also releases point updates (.1, .2, etc.), though those generally come without regularity.
