At the moment, tapping the blue icon at the top-right corner of the Assistant panel opens the Explore page where users can find trending Actions and look through the directory of Assistant apps. Of course, Lollipop and tablet support was explicitly added to the Assistant late past year.

Note, these are examples you can use if you're at home. Google Assistant for iPad is launching today, and it's available in a handful of different languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish.

Oddly, new features for Google Assistant often appear first on the standalone iOS app. You can either type or speak requests to the Assistant, depending on your preferences. This update is merely for the app shortcut listing on the Google Play Store, bringing the APK's minimum API level down to 21.
