Many Smartphones get a button for the Google wizard

Allo is just another failed messaging app that Google is killing off at the end of March, while Assistant is arguably the company's most prospective service to launch in recent years.

Google Assistant for Maps goes live today on both iOS and Android (though as ever you might need to update your app to see it). Google says this all happens on-device too, instead of in the cloud.

Meanwhile, Google has also incorporated Assistant's "What's on my screen" capability to find other suggestions when using Messages. Google launched Assistant in Marathi last summer and this week added Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, and Urdu.

Further, as promised, Google is porting more and more Allo features to its Messages app.

Google is also adding support for voice typing on KaiOS, the operating system that runs on JioPhone and JioPhone 2 smart feature phones. While this does look elegant, it also creates a problem. The feature will initially be limited to English users, though.

Those of you anxious about Google reading your personal messages should rest easy - the company says the content of your conversations is never sent to Assistant, only the entity listed on the chip you clicked.

Android phones aren't the only devices Assistant is expanding on. Google appears to be a fan of this implementation as the company has announced more manufacturers will introduce identical buttons with future smartphones. In case the user tap on the button then it will ask the Assistant a question and will give option to put the answer directly into the text messages thread. The content of your conversation isn't sent to Google's servers unless you tap on the suggestions.

Furthermore, Google is extending its Digital Wellbeing to non-Pixel smartphones, starting with the Motorola Moto G7 series with more smartphones to soon get it. It connects to a web-based client, which allows users to send and receive messages remotely on the web, and sorting through messages is easiest on this app than any other.
