Last August, Samsung released the Galaxy Watch4 with Wear OS 3, but it lacked Google Assistant. Although neither Samsung nor Google provided a specific date, we now know that Google’s digital assistant will be available for the Galaxy Watch4 this summer.
Mr. Patrick Chomet, EVP and Head of Customer Experience Office at Samsung Electronics’ Mobile eXperience Business, also stated that Google Assistant on the Galaxy Watch4 will offer “faster and more natural voice interactions, enabling instant replies and on-the-go help.”
Mr. Chomet also disclosed that Samsung is introducing “improved functionality” to its third-party partners, which implies that Spotify customers will be able to change tracks using simply their voice and Google Assistant.
The EVP further talked about optimizing Google’s apps and services for Galaxy Watches later this year to deliver “the most comprehensive and seamless wearable device experience with Android smartphones.”
What the Samsung executive didn’t talk about, though, is when exactly in summer the rollout of Google Assistant for the Galaxy Watch4 will begin. However, it’s still good to have a confirmed time frame for the release rather than having no word on it at all.
