Google Assistant has now become a common app on portable interfaces like smartphones and tabs. Now, the virtual assistant from Google is also going to mark its presence on Windows, macOS, and Linux. All things considered, Google has not officially carried out any specific Assistant app for the PC platform. An Indian developer Melvin L. Abraham has created an unofficial app that can summon the Google Assistant app on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
In this aide, I have explained the detailed interaction to install and set up the app to run Google Assistant on PC platforms. Remember that this is an unofficial approach and may not work for everyone. In addition, the interaction is quite technical however it is the same for any operating system you may use. As I use Windows OS, so I will show how to set up Google Assistant for it. We should get down to the steps now.
