Google Assistant can be found on both iOS and Android handsets
In trying to get the judge to dismiss the case, Google argued that the plaintiffs could not show any proof of harm or proof that Google failed to live up to any contractual arrangements that were made. The company correctly points out that it “never promises that the Assistant will activate only when plaintiffs intend it to.” Members of the class taking on Google in court include those in the U.S. who purchased a Google Assistant enabled device since May 18, 2016.
In her 37-page decision, Judge Freeman said that the plaintiffs have a long-enough history of using Google Assistant to know that they should have a reasonable expectation of privacy when speaking to the device. Google Assistant is available for both Android and iOS users and can be found on handsets, tablets, smart speakers, smartwatches and other smart devices.
