Google launches Google Assistant Routines
Of the over 30 languages Google has recently promised its "global" Assistantwill be available in by the end of the year, one that was already partially supported is getting a big boost today. There were some hints which Google has dropped in January that the Hindi language has been enabled on the Google Assistant. Google On Thursday said that Hindi support in the Google Assistant was rolling out in India and that people using Android 6 or higher will get soon.
Se your device language to Hindi then update your Google Search app to the latest version, to access the Google Assistant in Hindi.
Although this is good news for Google Assistant users who would like to communicate in Hindi, this actually isn't the first time we've seen the service's functionality expanded to include the language.
The Google Assistant may not exactly voice out a reminder. To try it out, just touch and hold the Home button or say "Ok Google" on eligible smartphones and your personal Google Assistant will be ready to help you throughout your day.
They will also be able to give Hindi voice commands for tasks such as setting alarms, finding directions, sending text messages and setting reminders, among others. To look for a nearby Punjabi restaurant, you can say 'Sabse kareeb Punjabi restaurant kahaan hain?', or for latest updates on cricket you could say 'Cricket ka score kya hain?'. Earlier Google Assistant could understand certain Hindi keywords and phrases but the replies would come in English. Now, you can set location-based reminders using your Google Home speakers, according to a Tweet by Google.
"And it'll get better over time - with your permission, it can learn your preferences, your likes and your dislikes - all done in a private, secure way that puts you in control", Google said. Dadar tak pahunchne mein kitna samay lagega?
