I doubt that prepaid users will be able to use it. The link mentions Koodo subscribers which prepaid isnt. Prepaid users cant even use the refer a friend program.

Hi Joey,

Are you a customer of Koodo? What would you like to do?

Mobilesyrup is not affiliated with Koodo, as far as I know. And Koodo hasn't officially announced anything about google assistant yet.

Telus is selling Amazon products, so Telus customers might get it in near future. I am not sure about Koodo. Many features of Telus haven't come to Koodo yet (or never come at all). So I wouldn't expect much unless there is a substantial demand for it.

Prepaid customers can't call forward, even though it's advertised, or get EXT (free) roaming on Canadian networks when Telus towers are not available, so don't hold your breath for additional features.

Prepaid = Redheaded step-child.

@Joey, we are working GA integration for prepaid although it will take several months. For monthly customers, which we have far, far more, our own Assistant (https://koodo.ada.support/chat/ ) gets you answers to far more inquiries that the current Google inquiries. Albeit, we put authentication in Google it is a PIN which most people hate. There are enough PINs people forget already. :-) 

Come sometime in April the next version of our virtual assistant will use your self serve authentication making things easier. We have started conversations with Google to integrate all skills/intentions into their assistant so it could do a lot more than today. It's Google though so things move a little slower, but they said a couple of months should do. We'll see how things advance.

This is a good news. Koodoo prepaid works great for me. And to have my pixel 2 utilize Google Assistant to access/check my prepaid balance would be awesome.
