Google's virtual assistant, The Google Assistant, is coming to iOS.

The Google Assistant app is now available for download in the App Store.

We'd heard rumors Google would be launching an app for iOS featuring the Google Assistant and Google confirmed that today during Google I/O.

The Google Assistant won't have the deep integrations on iOS it has on Android, so it'll be interesting to see if it can be helpful enough to warrant opening a separate app instead of using shortcuts like, "Hey, Siri!" or holding down the home button on iPhone and iPad.
