Google assistant, a search giant for Alexa, which lives on smartphones, tablets and speakers from Google, will announce more languages so far this year to cover 95% of all Android smartphones, Google announced this morning. . Soon it also becomes multilingual, meaning that users who speak more than one language can speak to an assistant in all the languages they use.
The latter feature will be very useful for those who speak their native language at home, but can speak a different language than a local friend or at work, for example.
While Google’s assistants can understand different languages, there is no way to easily switch between them. You must configure your language options in the application configuration. This feature makes talking with assistants more natural.
Multilingual support will be available first in English, French and German and will be launched later this year, but more languages will be added on time, the company said.
The global presence of Google’s aides is also growing, the company said.
This year, Smart Assistants will be available in 8 languages for over 30 years. In the coming months, the assistants will study Danish, Dutch, Hindi, Indonesian, Norwegian, Swedish and Thai on Android and iPhone phones. At the end of the year, it is expected to reach 95 percent of Android smartphones worldwide capable of running Google now.
Google AdSense will also benefit from its competitors such as Siri and Alexa, which have limited language support. Amazon has expanded its echo speakers to more markets around the world, but has not found a device for the site: Alexa can speak only English, German and Japanese. At the same time, one of Siri’s greatest strengths is that he can speak in more than 20 languages.
Added language support is one of many updates announced this morning to Google Assistant, including the Ohm mobile helper program to help mobile phone manufacturers integrate deeper with the assistant, launch actions and site-based reminders. , Which will be launched next week.
