Device Assist

Google is giving some extra help to some Android 5.0 Lollipop users with the launch today of Device Assist, an app that promises to give "tips and proactive troubleshooting" while using their new OS update.

The Device Assist app is just for Lollipop users who own a Nexus branded device like the new Nexus 6 or Nexus 9, along with any Android One or Google Play Edition products with Android 5.0 installed. The feature list is a rather short one:

  • Get proactive help with detected issues (GPS, connectivity, battery, etc.)
  • Get tips to explore new features and improve the performance of your device

Hopefully this new app will indeed offer folks some solid help and tips while they use their Lollipop device.
