Google Assistant was first launched in February to all android phones after availability to Pixel handsets. While it was compatible with only Android 6.0 or higher and fortunately now it has also been made available to old phones. So the next phase was tablets, and now they will also be able to use Google’s solution as long they have Android 6.0 or higher. To get it on your tablet the language should be set to U.S. English.
