You can now talk to Google Assistant in Hindi

Krales  The Verge

On Thursday, Goodgle launched a new support feature in Hindi for its virtual assistant Google. There were some hints which Google has dropped in January that the Hindi language has been enabled on the Google Assistant. During 2017, Google launched the Assistant in Hindi the instant-messaging platform Allo. However, Google will rollout support for the Hindi Assistant on devices running on Android Lollipop 5.0 as well as iPhones. You will also need to update the Google Search app to the latest version.

Further, Google has built a dedicated site to highlight which Hindi commands can be used in the Google Assistant app. The Google Assistant has supported geofencing triggers for reminders before, but you've needed to set them up on your smartphone itself. As mentioned, the Google Assistant lets you have a conversation with Google to help you get things done with your voice, and now users can do that in Hindi. Google also has a dedicated website with a list of commands available in Hindi for Google Assistant. Even when your hands are full, you can quickly send text messages, set reminders, or get directions with the Google Assistant. Cricket ka score kya hain? For example, while you can specify a particular type of store to trigger a reminder - Walmart for groceries, for example, or Starbucks for coffee beans - there doesn't appear to be a way to define a specific store.

Powered by machine learning, the Google Assistant is built on two decades of experience in Search as well as natural language understanding, computer vision, and understanding user context.

This native language support made the Google Assistant available to all those Indians who will don't speak or understand English. Earlier Google Assistant could understand certain Hindi keywords and phrases but the replies would come in English.
