Hi all

I was just launching some activities from the Nova Launcher through which I accidentally opened the Google Assistant! With Lollipop! On a tablet!

Without much wait, Let's start

Pre-Requistites-
Latest Google App(Mine was 7.3.18.21)
An Android Lollipop or Lollipop+ Device
Nova Launcher
A Working Brain


Let's Go!
  • Open Nova Launcher
  • Long-Press on Home Screen
  • Select Widgets
  • Click on Activities
  • Scroll Down till you find Google App and Click on it
  • Scroll down and select com.google.android.apps.gsa.staticplugins.opa.hq.O paHqActivity
  • A Google Assistant icon will appear on your screen, click on it
  • Click on Your Stuff
  • Click on add reminder and then close it
  • Open Google App, open menu, and then Settings
  • There you should see Google Assistant
  • Your turn, teach the Assistant your voice and start playing with it


Do not even try to post a "Thanks". Press button if you want to say thanks, it really helps a lot!

UPDATE

Google App's June 28th update(7.6.9 Beta) just removed the Your Stuff screen. Users who already enabled Assistant by this method have this screen. Other users with latest Google App can't enable Google Assistant by using this method. I recommend downgrading to Google App v7.3, enabling Assistant from the above method and then upgrading to latest one.

UPDATE 2

Google App 7.10 update doesn't let people use Google Assistant if they don't meet the requirements, >1.5 Gb of memory and 720p or higher screen resolution.
There's a workaround, to use Google App v7.8 till there's another workaround . I need someone to test this out as I have 2GB RAM.

Frequently Added Questions


When I open the Your Stuff tab, it is empty.
Change language to English(US) and clear the cache of Google App.(Credits to @Ezekiel3)

How can I use Assistant by long-pressing the home button?
Check out this awesome app by @Jovic77 here.

When I launch the activity, it just flashes for a second and goes away.
Clear data of Google App and Play Services, and then launch the activity.

I can't see Your Stuff tab.
Downgrade to Google App v7.3 from sources such as APK Mirror. You can upgrade to latest one after enabling Google Assistant.
