Android has 2.5 billion monthly active users. The Google Assistant on the other hand, the past year quadrupled its active users and it's now available in more than a billion devices. While this number constantly grows, during this years IO we saw a next gen Assistant that is smart, helpful, extremely fast, but most importantly a part of the OS instead of an add-on. From showing notifications and information when asked, to opening apps and complete the action there, the Assistant can get things done faster and better than ever.
