If you want to install and use the Google Assistant app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Google Assistant in the search bar and press Search. Click on Google Assistant application icon. A window of Google Assistant on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Google Assistant Software Features and Description

Meet your Google Assistant. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help. Find answers and get things done while on-the-go with the help of your Google Assistant.

With the Assistant app, you can: - Make quick phone calls (e.g. "Call Mom.") - Send text messages (e.g. "Text my bestie.") - Email your boss (e.g. "Here is the latest TPS report.") - Set reminders (e.g. "Remind me to buy a birthday gift for Sarah.") - Set calendar events (e.g. "Set a calendar event for dinner with Charlie tomorrow from 7-9.") - Play music (e.g. "Play jazz music on YouTube.") - Navigate places (e.g. "Get me directions home.") - Weather information (e.g. "Do I need an umbrella today?") *Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

    This app is almost perfect, I really enjoy Google Assistant so much more than Siri or Alexa, the interface is clean and easy to use, and I actually enjoy using the app and find it fun. However when I ask Google what’s on my calendar, it does not list everything that’s on my Google Calendar, just the things that I have entered through Google Assistant. (For example, if I create an event through the Calendar app, the Assistant does not read or recognize it). I also wish that there was a way for Google Assistant to list all events and reminders when asking about my day. I have to ask separately “what are my events this week” and then “what are my reminders this week”. If there was a way to see everything at once that would be great. All in all, this app is the best personal assistant I’ve used so far and I highly recommend it.
  • Better than Siri

    I find the Google Assistant to be way better that Apple’s native solution that is Siri. I think it has more to do with how the information is packaged. Most of the time, the Assistant gives me something from the web, á la Siri, but instead of giving me the oft-repeated and annoying line “Here’s what I found on the web for...”, the Assistant gives me the result in a similar manner to the Top Stories feature on Google Search. I also use the 3rd-party integration much more than I ever have with Siri. My biggest problem with the Assistant is not exclusive to Google’s AI, (I have this complaint about Siri and Amazon’s Alexa as well) but nevertheless, there’s a discoverablity problem. As the Assistant is in an uncanny valley of intelligence, I’m not entirely sure of everything I can do at any given time. I think Google is at a good place of addressing this problem.
  • Way better than siri

    I recently needed to do some projects and used Siri it get information hands free, however I found out that it is very limited and only reads info from Wikipedia, I can barely even show some pics! Then I got this app, and I'm impressed by Google answer to siri. The "ok, Google" feature works 99% of the time for my horrible accent and the voice is very cheerful and fluent. Its ironic that a 3rd party application does better than what Siri can do. Information is usually on pint and the new connecting with Chromecast is very useful. This app a nessacity is all iphones and should be kapt in the iPhone dock. Theres is literally nothing wrong with this pp for me other than the fact that accessing it is harder than Siri. This app and gboard is perfect t combination for your iphone.

    I want John Legend's voice to say "you got this. You can get through your day", like not even the custom voice reading a deep thoughtful quote from the internet, just it repeating my reassurance but from another person's voice is dank enough 🙌😂 also Google assistant being able to write more than one sentence down on a note would be great. Other than that I love this app and how natural the conversation/ search results are. I think it's headed in the right direction even though I don't know where my information is going (low-key worried about privacy bc I'd hate products marketed to me in such a way). Either way this is a great app I think everyone should have since it is convenient, intuitive, and user-friendly. I hope I don't come across as harsh in reviewing but I try to include equal pros and cons.

    HOW DO YOU DELETE THE APP
  • Siri shortcuts are unreliable.

    Siri shortcuts work at first. But then they stop working until I delete and set them up again.

    By tijferyiolhw
    I don’t know if there’s already a way to change this, but for the morning routine I need the ability to change how fast my assistant goes over the weather and my daily calendar before turning my music on. It goes so fast I can’t read it and when I tried to go read it, its like it disappeared. Other than that she’s great!
  • Better search than Siri, but bad design

    Google Assistant is well intentioned, but like a Swiss Army Knife, the bundled tools work, but they compromise ultimate functionality in favor of bundling. My main interest for the app is tracking stocks, whose function was removed from the Google App. Every iteration seems to get worse in this aspect. I have stocks I have never searched show up in my list, can’t see some stocks that ARE on my list and there is no obvious way to delete stocks I no longer want to track.
  • Apple Sabotaging Shortcut

    By IGotThisOne
    The latest update allowed for Siri shortcut but apparently Apple doesn’t like it and has sabotaged the shortcut feature of using Siri to launch the Google assistance. Grow up Apple, Siri is subpar and you don’t like it.

    Speech recognition results are unpredictable. Worse than that, they are stupidly unpredictable
