Google Assistant now speaks Hindi

Home Automation: Google Assistant, Amazon Cloud Cam Pick Up New Abilities

In addition to the above, Google also launched a JioPhone version of Android Assistant which support Hindi and English languages.

Internet search giant Google has announced the launch of Google Assistant in Hindi. Several months ago, Google worked with local Indian carrier Jio to bring an assistant that spoke both Hindi and English to a feature phone. However, Google will rollout support for the Hindi Assistant on devices running on Android Lollipop 5.0 as well as iPhones. To set a location-based reminder, simply tell the Google Assistant to remind you something when you're at the location. Having Google Maps and Assistant baked into Android phones makes this, theoretically, less of a technical challenge than it would be for Amazon Alexa. Further, Google has built a dedicated site to highlight what Hindi commands you can use in the Google Assistant app. 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.

Users can now access all of the features that Assistant offers by giving it voice commands in Hindi.

To set an alarm, you could say "Kal subah mujhe saat baje jagaao", or to click a selfie, you could say "Selfie kheencho".

Clifford filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles last week that sought to invalidate the agreement so she could "set the record straight". The New York Times broke the story on Monday of Clifford's offer to pay back the 2016 fee of $130,000 paid to her by Cohen.

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.

"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.

The announcement of the expansion of the Google Assistant language capabilities came at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year, with news that the functionality would be expanded with 30 new languages over the next couple of months. Or Cricket ka score kya hain?
