Since the update is already live, it has started working with builtin Google apps. The new Android 8.0 Oreo allows Google Assistant launch within the app itself. 

According to the testers of Android 8.0 Oreo, we have picked up a new feature on this latest Android OS. According to this new feature, Android 8.0 Oreo applications would be able to launch the Google Assistant app itself within the current apps.

Google is currently working for the expansion of its services to non-Google devices. Recently, Google has made its Google Assistant available for iOS devices in Europe. And now, the new Android 8.0 Oreo applications can launched Google Assistant directly from the app. This makes Google Assistant to work with other third party applications.

This should not be affected by multi window at all. So, it’s a great way to make use of Google Assistant on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo Operating System.

Google allows users to choose between the available Voice assistant on the phone and this new Android 8.0 Oreo update will offer the same thing.
