Google's voice-controlled AI Assistant comes to the iPhone

You no longer need to install the Allo messaging app on your iPhone to shoot the breeze with Google’s AI Assistant. At the I/O keynote, Google’s Scott Huffman announced that the Assistant is truly coming to the iPhone today, as was rumored earlier this week. We’re not quite sure yet whether it’s getting its own app or will be integrated into the existing Google app, but the important thing here is you’ll be able to interact with Assistant using your voice, whether that means asking it questions or controlling your smart home devices with conversational commands. Before now, you could only get limited Assistant functionality through Allo, which also required you to type queries and orders into the chat app.

With Amazon just starting to roll out its Alexa voice-controlled assistant to iOS as of last month, things are starting to look a little cramped in there for the poor old Siri.
