For the unaware, Google Assistant is a virtual helper powered by artificial intelligence, and is available on Android phones along with the Google Home smart speaker. To help developers fine-tune their own apps, Google has launched a "Building for Billions" Web page with technical tools and checklists for handling devices with a variety of connectivity, range, data management, and battery capabilities. "Most of these users are in emerging markets". Google Play Protect, while not seriously overhauling Android security, gives visibility to the work that was being done behind the scenes. Many will be using low-priced or second-hand phones and their data access may be limited by network coverage or cost.

It has always been a known fact that Google wants its Assistant to run on as many devices as possible. For those that are fond of the digital assistant that Google has baked into the Pixel and Pixel XL, if you ever need to send money to a friend things are about to get a whole lot easier. It has been announced by Google that this feature will be enabled to the users of its Assistant in the United States.
