Users of a Galaxy Watch4 can finally use the Google Assistant starting today. After downloading, the watch understands and executes spoken commands.
Samsung announced the Galaxy Watch 4 in August of 2021. It did so together with Google because the smartwatch runs a platform of the search giant; Wear OS. Previously, Samsung's smartwatches used their own platform called Tizen. Even though the Watch4 uses Google's Wear OS, the useful Google Assistant was missing. But that is being corrected as of today.
Because starting May 24, it will be possible for Galaxy Watch 4 owners to download the Google Assistant app from the Play Store. For now, this will only work for users from the countries listed below;
- South Korea
- United Kingdom
- United States
The assistant understands 12 languages, including English, German, French, Danish, and Spanish. Commands to play music or search information on the web become possible. It is unclear when other countries will follow and if more languages will be supported.
