The Google Assistant can search the Internet, schedule events and alarms, adjust hardware settings on the user's device, and show information from the user's Google account and more. It will also be available to users in Italy, Japan, Germany, Brazil and Korea.

Not only is it coming to Android Lollipop, it is also confirmed to be coming to tablets as well.
