Google Assistant is finally here, on iOS. Google’s personal assistant allows iPhone owners to gain access to Google’s features without needing a Pixel smartphone. Basically, Google Assistant can handle more complicated tasks and questions than Apple’s virtual helper, Siri, but the Assistant cannot set alarms on iPhone.
If you are planning to switch from Apple’s Siri to Google Assistant, you will be happy to know that you can set home or work location in the Assistant on your iPhone. By doing so, the Assistant will keep you updated on the latest traffic status and directions.
In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the steps to set home or work location in Google Assistant on your iPhone. Before we begin, make sure that you have already installed the app on your device and your iPhone is running the latest version of iOS.
Steps to set home or work location in Google Assistant on your iPhone and iPad
Step one: First off, you need to launch Google Assistant app from your home screen and then tap on the circle button located at the top right corner of the screen to proceed
Step two: Next up, you now need to tap on the menu button that’s dead at the top right corner of the app. From the list of options that pops up, you need to tap on Settings and then select Personal Info

Step four: Once you are in, you will see two options including Add home address and add work address. Tap Add home address to add your home location and tap Add work address to add your work location. Hit OK when you are done.
