Google Assistant is a full-fledged personal assistant for Android phones and Smart Home devices. It helps you perform many things hands-free on your device, and it can engage in two-way conversations. Google Assistant isn’t available for the computer for now, but you can get it on Desktop and Laptop unofficially.
Here’s how to install Google Assistant on your computer (Windows, Linux, and Mac). The cross-platform unofficial Google Assistant Desktop Client works fine on PC, but don’t expect it like it on your Android phone and smart home devices with the official client. And, to use this desktop client, you must complete the device registration process.
The design of unofficial Google Assistant for Desktop is derived from Google Assistant in Chrome OS and has a light and dark theme.
