You can even trace the evolution of the Google Assistant. Starting with the Quick Search Box in 1.6 Donut, Voice Actions in 2.2 Froyo, Google Now in 4.1 Jelly Bean, “OK Google” in 4.4 KitKat and Now on Tap in 6.0 Marshmallow.

Again, check the Google Blog for the whole story, here’s a quick slideshow for the more impatient.
