That includes Android and iOS smartphones, display units like Google Home Hub, speakers like Google Home, plus TVs, headphones, watches and more.

Google said the Assistant (otherwise known as "Hey" or "OK Google") is available in 30 languages and 80 countries, up from eight languages and 14 countries in 2017.
