The voice assistant was released past year for the Pixel devices then was later rolled out to all the phones running the newer Android versions.

It seems that Google has more for us in store than new devices. But this news is nothing to rejoice about.

Amidst yesterday;s reveal of a plethora of Google products including the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google Home Mini, and the Google Home Max, Google appears to have quietly removed the Android Wear section from its online store. Just say "OK Google, play Spotify" any time, anywhere and you will be able to enjoy your favorite tunes away from Home.

With the app installed, you can add the shortcut to the home screen of your Android device and click on it to activate the Assistant. Once you pick your topics, you'll not only get a personalized section of news within the app, you'll also be able to get push notifications for breaking news related to your chosen topics.

If you want to use Play Store app on its latest update, you will need to install Play Store APK 8.3.41, which is the latest version of the app store that is now available for download. Now available on nearly all of Google's different devices and platforms, not to mention integrating with third-party platforms, it has the potential to become what pundits and even conspiracists have been looking for: Google OS. To begin with, the company has updated the Play Store policy, encouraging developers to start building the app. At the I/O Google announced its launch of the AI based assistant and made its debut with a Pixel Smartphone. One of the major breakthroughs of this endeavour is the innovative voice match feature that allows the Assistant to build a DNA of sorts of individual voices based on the pitch, tonality, diction, and other voice signatures.

Your device must still meet the requirements in order to use the Google Assistant (Google Search v7.11 or higher and minimum memory requirements).

With the exception of accessories like wireless headphones and cases, plus products from Nest, all non-Google products are gone from the store.
