Google has announced its smart voice assistant, Google Assistant, is now available on Apple iPads. More screen real estate simply means that you don't have to exit one app just to hop into Google Assistant. Like all digital assistants except Siri, the app must be manually opened on the iPad and can not be summoned in the background as on Android devices. Once you're in the app, Google Assistant has most of the functionality you're used to on other platforms, whether its controlling home automation systems through voice commands, scheduling reminders, or composing text messages.

Case Keenum reportedly plans to sign with the Broncos
When they do, we'll have a better sense if the Broncos see Keenum as "the guy" going forward or if he is merely a stopgap. He may not be talked about a lot as a top corner in free agency, but whoever signs him will be getting a major steal.

Google Assistant is rolling out to iPads from today, and is available in English, German, French, Japanese, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish. Like most updates or features Google pushes out, Assistant could be coming out in phases, so if you haven't gotten this feature yet, don't worry. Microsoft released an iPad-optimized version of Cortana last month, after Amazon's Alexa ranked third overall in iPad App Store downloads during the 2017 holiday season.

QB Case Keenum intends to sign with Broncos, sources say
