And not just to iPhones: the Google Assistant is expected to get introduced as a stand-alone application that you can get on the App Store, and that will work on all sorts of iOSdevices.
Volvo has agreed a deal with Google to develop the next generation of its infotainment and connectivity system. Google I/O is first and foremost a conference for software developers after all. No, not Android Auto, the interface that allows you to project parts of your phone's screen on an in-dash display-that's already in many cars on the road today. Either way, we should be seeing this announcement sometime this week or early next week. This means that Google Assistant will soon be available for third party home speakers as well, for instance, the Spot speaker by NVIDIA.

Google Assistant also made its way to select Android 6.0 Marshmallow phones as well. One of the exhibits features Android as a seamlessly integrated solution for in-car infotainment applications, which is being developed by the Android Open Source Community and its millions of members.
It's also said that this version of Android will have full support for the Google Assistant, which is called up using a button on the steering wheel. This is a lot like Microsoft's Cortana, Amazon's Alexa, and Apples' Siri.
Google I/O begins at 10am Pacific time (6pm BST) with a 90-minute keynote led by CEO Sundar Pichai offering an overview of the company's position in 2017 and a glimpse into the future of Google technology. Before, Cortana was only available on Windows 10 PCs and Windows 10 Mobile.
According to a report from Android Police, the Assistant will be featured in its own standalone app for iOS.
