Google is always up to something in the Assistant department, and during MWC 2018, the company is announcing some of its latest efforts. For one, the Google Assistant is getting 30 more supported languages. Soon, users will be able to speak in languages such as Danish, Dutch, Hindi, Indonesian, Norwegian, Swedish, and Thai. The update will be supported on both Android and iOS. According to the company, more languages will roll out throughout the year.
But that’s not all. Not only can you choose 30 new languages to speak in with the Assistant, but you’ll also be able to freely speak in whatever language you prefer. The company describes this feature in better context below.
We’re also making the Assistant multilingual later this year, so families or individuals that speak more than one language can speak naturally to the Assistant. With this new feature, the Assistant will be able to understand you in multiple languages fluently. If you prefer to speak German at work, but French at home, your Assistant is right there with you.
So basically, you’ll be free to speak whatever language you want to the Assistant whenever you want and it’ll understand. The first supported languages for this feature include English, French, and German with more to come in the future.
Expect more language-oriented features from the Assistant in the coming months.
