Last year, Google Assistant was updated with support for the Hindi language. Now, Google Assistant for Android TV also offers support for the same language. In September this year, Google revealed that Hindi has become the second most used Google Assistant language globally after English. Android is the most popular mobile OS in the world, and with India being a key mobile phone market, Google is putting its efforts to support the national language.
Apart from the Hindi language, the Google Assistant on your Android TV can also talk in eight more languages. On Android TVs, the Google Assistant is available in English, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian and Japanese. The list also includes Korean, Portuguese (Brazilian), Spanish, and Vietnamese. Google is expected to add support for more languages soon.
“On TVs that don’t run the Android TV operating system, available languages vary. LG TVs, the Google Assistant is available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish. On all other TVs, the Google Assistant is only available in English,” Google said.
Google Assistant, the defacto virtual assistant from Google is now present on most of the Google devices in the market. These devices include Android-powered smartphones, smart televisions, smart speakers, connected cars, laptops, and even more.
