I have found this out, It's something Google has been slowly rolling out since last year.  Some people still don't have it.   Make sure you Google app is up to date, and if it is and still don't have it then Google hasn't "unlocked it" for you.

I installed Google assistant. Don't recall If I had the dots in my search widget prior to this.  

 

 I did see an article that mentions it however.

Google assistant is on my phone and I do not have these dots. 

 

This article is actually what made me look for this feature.

Trevor,

To my knowledge the s9 and s9+ were only sold with Oreo.   

 

Unless you guys snuck Nougat in there somewhere.
