In addition to the above, Google also launched a JioPhone version of Android Assistant which support Hindi and English languages. With that in mind, Google Assistant has been updated with support for the Hindi language.
Over the past year, Google has launched the Assistant in Hindi in Allo, brought the English Assistant to more phones, and made a special version available for Reliance Jio feature phones. The company has also announced that it will roll out Hindi language support to devices running on Android 5.0 Lollipop, iPhones and Android Go Edition based devices very soon.
To set the Google Assistant in Hindi, the user has to set their device language in Hindi and update their Google Search app as well.
Reminders on the Google Assistant are getting a whole lot more useful, with the ability to ask your Google Home to nudge your memory when you get to the store.
Just to help people start with the Google Assistant in Hindi, Google shares examples of some typical commands. We also received word last month that Google Assistant was already capable of understanding Hindi, but that there were some issues that needed to be ironed out for it to be a complete version like the one that is now available. Users can access the new support to send text messages, set reminders, or get directions directly through Google Assistant.
To set an alarm, you could say "Kal subah mujhe saat baje jagaao", or to click a selfie, you could say "Selfie kheencho". Dadar tak pahunchne mein kitna samay lagega?
Machine learning-backed Google Assistant uses a mix of natural language understanding, computer vision, and understanding user context to give appropriate results for Hindi queries right in Hindi. Here, actions can be created for Google Assistant in Hindi which can be used for different services by simply saying "Ok Google, talk to". You could type certain Hindi commands in English like "Bharat ke pradhan mantri" and "khichdi banana ka tarika".
