Your move, Siri.
Google Assistant is now available for iPhones, the company confirmed Wednesday. Scott Huffman, VP of engineering for Assistant, announced the plans at the Google I/O conference keynote address near the company's global headquarters in Mountain View, California.
Assistant is the digital, voice-activated AI that rivals Amazon's Alexa voice assistant, Apple's Siri and Microsoft's Cortana. Google Assistant had previously only been available on Android phones and through the Google Home smart speaker.
