Method 1 of Google Assistant App: Manual editing
Just add or replace these lines on your build.prop:
ro.product.model=Pixel XL ro.opa.eligible_device=true
What languages are supported by Google Assistant App?
Only English and German for now.
I’m still having Google Now, what can I do?
Go to the Google app info and wipe its data.
Now my phone model is Pixel or Pixel XL, is this a problem?
Maybe. Some manufacturers uses the build.prop data to offer their apps and updates on Google Play, so you can have problems updating those apps. Nexus owners won’t have any problem.
My camera is crashing!
Restore your build.prop and use the new method.
The “Ok Google” hotword doesn’t work!
