Today, however, we have some great news for the hundreds of millions of people out there with Android devices that run Lollipop: You finally have access to one of Google's best creations. The company is now testing a lite version of Google Maps, the Google Maps Go.
Google says that devices running Android Go open 15 percent faster compared to other versions of Android. Once you get the Google Assistant update and opt-in, you should see the Assistant app icon in the "All apps" list. Comparable lightweight Go variations of Google Assistant and Gmail are en route, as indicated by Google.
Google Assistant will arrive on smartphones running on Android 5.0 Lollipop and tablets running Android 7.0 Nougat and 6.0 Marshmallow. Google Assistant has started rolling out to users with the language set to English in the U.S., UK, India, Australia, Canada, and Singapore, as well as to Spanish user in the U.S., Mexico, and Spain. The app will be available exclusively for Android smartphones running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher and with a RAM capacity of 1GB or lower.

"Google Assistant also rolling out to users in Italy, Japan, Germany, Brazil and Korea".

Eligible English language tablet users in the USA will begin receiving the update "over the coming week".
With a download size less than 5MB, the Google Maps Go is a lightweight version of the main Google Maps app and is basically meant for use with the Android Oreo Go edition.
