In other variants, you can access the application menu and click on the Google Assistant application icon.

If this does not work, you may need to enable the service, which can be done by opening the Google application, by touching the three-line icon (Men), selecting Configuration and then in the section Google Assistant, by pressing Settings again and selecting Activate.
