ZTE Max XL - No Google Assistant

On my last phone, which was the LG Stylo 2, I had the Google Assistant. I could say, "Good Morning Google," and it would say, "Good Morning, Roberta," and it would proceed to give me the weather for the day, how long it would take me to get to work, news updates, etc. I had already set up Google Voice on this phone, the Max XL, and every time I say, 'Okay Google, show me my shopping list," it takes me to the search bar and the keyboard pops up. When I tell it to add something to my shopping list, it creates it in Google Keep, which it is no longer supposed to do, according to Google with the inception of the Google Assistant. When I tap the microphone on the Google search bar and say, "Good Afternoon Google," it comes back with "Hello, here's some things you can try," and it gives me a list. Google has the Google Assistant app in the Play store, but it will not install on the Max XL.  I downloaded it from the Google Play Store and it keeps saying, "We're still configuring your Google Assistant app. Please try again in a few minutes" Nothing ever happens. I thought that Google Assistant was supposed to roll out to all devices running Nougat? For some reason, I cannot get it to work on my Max XL. I have compared the Google App and functions of both phones and my LG Stylo 2 is running Android 7.0 and was updated to Google Assistant. This phone (Max XL), which is running 7.1.1 is not. I need to know how to get it to update to Google Assistant. Thanks for your response.
