Google Assistant for iOS
Use Google Assistant on the road to control your iOS device

Google Assistant is its latest version of the personal assistant device, which is the Google equivalent to Siri. The latest version of Google Assistant brings whole host of new expansive voice controls beyond the existing “OK Google”. For example, with your iPhone, it’s possible to command Assistant to play music via Spotify and send iMessages.

Whilst it’s been available (as a default app) on Android for a while, Google Assistant pulls out any relevant information for you and is clearly pitched as a rival to Siri on your iPhone: it knows your place of work, where you live and will keep tabs on your meeting locations, travel plans, your favourite sports teams and even your interest. These features are presented on cards and also as reminders on your phone.

Where Assistant excels is the interaction with your Google Home device which Google recently launched as a rival to Amazon’s Alexa. You can use task the Assistant to turn on or off your living room lights if you left the house and forgot to turn them off on the way out, as long as your Home device is connected to your lighting system. Of course, you can use Assistant and Home look up emails and locate orders sent through Google Mail.

Google will also be launching Google Lens on Assistant soon. Point your camera towards a restaurant and Google Assistant will bring up the ratings and reviews before you step in. Lens will show you what is on at the movies if you point your camera at a cinema.

Finally, you can also interact with the Assistant via text if you prefer not to speak or if you are in a place where it would be inappropriate to have a full human to device interaction.

What's New in Version 1.0.3004

Bug fixes and stability improvements

Verdict:

A good first start on the iPhone for Google Assistant, once the new slew of features mentioned comes in it will be even better, and perhaps we won't need Siri anymore?

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document.
