Oddly, new features for Google Assistant often appear first on the standalone iOS app. More screen real estate simply means that you don't have to exit one app just to hop into Google Assistant.

So, if you're an Apple user who happens to enjoy Google's services, you now have more options when it comes to using Google Assistant on iOS. You can either type or speak requests to the Assistant, depending on your preferences.

Available for free from the iOS App Store, Google Assistant version 1.2.4507 promises the "full Assistant experience on your iPad" and has an interface formatted for all iPad screens - from the 7.9-inch iPad mini series to the largest 12.9-inch iPad Pro. It also can help you compose emails, set reminders and calendar events, play music, help you navigation, answer questions, cast to your TV and control connected smart home devices, among other things.

In fact, only yesterday, Amazon announced its Alexa app for tablets, including iPad, was being updated to support Alexa calling and messaging features which route communications through the Alexa platform.
