Google Assistant adds Hindi support
If there is one thing that limits any digital assistant’s broader reach is the support of other languages. Today, Google has added Hindi support in Google Assistant, something that could be a game changer for Assistant’s reach and popularity.
The tech giant’s AI can now understand your Hindi and answer back respectively. We tried it with some basic questions and came out impressed. When asked more complex questions, the Assistant will simply refer you back to articles written in Hindi.
Google Allo already has Hindi support built-in and it was about time to carry forward it in Assistant too. The update is rolling out on the server side. We were able to test it without any update. Expect Google to boast some huge Assistant requests numbers during I/O in May.
