Samsung launched the Galaxy Watch4 last August with Wear OS 3, but it didn’t come with Google Assistant. Neither Samsung nor Google ever gave a definite time frame of when that would happen, but we now know that Google’s digital assistant will be released for the Galaxy Watch4 this summer.
Word comes from Mr. Patrick Chomet, EVP and Head of Customer Experience Office at Mobile eXperience Business, Samsung Electronics, who also said that Google Assistant on Galaxy Watch4 will feature “faster and more natural voice interactions, enabling quick answers and on-the-go help.”

Mr. Chomet also revealed that Samsung is bringing “enhanced functionality” to their third-party partners, which, for Spotify users, means changing songs with Google Assistant using only their voice.
The EVP further talked about optimizing Google’s apps and services for Galaxy Watches later this year to deliver “the most comprehensive and seamless wearable device experience with Android smartphones.”
What the Samsung executive didn’t talk about, though, is when exactly in summer the rollout of Google Assistant for the Galaxy Watch4 will begin. However, it’s still good to have a confirmed time frame for the release rather than having no word on it at all.
