The Pixel also brings along with it Google Assistant. This is basically the smarter, more chatty version of Google Now. You can access Assistant by saying ‘OK, Google’, or by long-pressing the home button (which would previously launch Google Now on Tap). Google Assistant is recently built into Google Allo, the company’s new smart messaging app. Instead of only existing in Allo, though here, Assistant can be accessed from pretty much every corner in pixel device.Even if you’re offline, just send a message to Google Assistant and let the answer process in the background. After you’re back online you’ll get a notification when the answer is ready for you.
