Google launches Device Assist Android app

Google has launched a new app aimed at showing users around its latest Android Lollipop software. Device Assist is designed for Nexus, Google Play Edition and Android One owners.

As well as taking you through how Lollipop works and what it can do, Device Assist is meant to fix problems on the fly. That means it can suss out why your battery is draining excessively or whether your screen is on too bright.

There are a series of helpful guides to let you get the most out of your phone, as well as the ability to request a callback if your phone is having major issues.

The app comes as Google deals with a raft of complaints about its new software, with many Nexus users complaining that Lollipop has made their handsets and tablets unusable since updating.

Interestingly, some older Nexus users are saying that Device Assist is not compatible with their phones. It appears Google has a long way to go in order to get its new–look OS up to speed.
