    There is always a possibility, but I believe that right now this functionality is limited to just official Pixelbooks by Google. It may rely on special Google-only APIs (as Google Now did on Chromebooks in the past). 

     

    If it becomes generally available to all Chromebooks and via a public API, we'll be happy to support it in CloudReady.

    should be possible now that you reached version 72... according flags are available...

    It does not work though...

    getting this error when trying to optin after enabling the flag: "Google Assistant konnte nicht geladen werden. Überprüfen Sie Ihre Netzverbindung und versuchen Sie es noch einmal." (german, means "couldn't load. check connectivity") connectivity is given though.

    does anybody know about any persistant hurdle to use it on cloudready?

    Please see Forrest comment above about APIs. Even if the flags are there, it does not mean the APIs are publicly available.

    Forrest said "If it becomes generally available to all Chromebooks".

    That is the case meanwhile from my understanding...

    You are omitting the rest of that sentence "If it becomes generally available to all Chromebooks and via a public API". So again, it does not mean the APIs are publicly available.

    hi everybody,

    does this right here tell us, that google assistant API is publicly available meanwhile?

    https://developers.google.com/assistant/sdk/reference/rpc/

    Tommy,

    That's an SDK which includes API calls, but it isn't tied specifically to Chromium OS or the Assistant functionality that ties in to the OS.

    It is certainly seems possible to start from scratch and build Assistant functionality into an app using the tools you're linking to, but that's different than the specific functionality built for Chromium OS being freely available.

    I just looked into this again this week on our upcoming v76.1 builds - as far as I can tell, Google Assistant functionality continues to be limited to (some) official Chrome OS devices.
