In a bid to capture the Indian Market, Google has now become multilingual. The Assistant is capable of automatically understanding the language as English or Hindi. Soon, seven more Indian languages will be added to Google Assistant, says Google.
Aiming at providing a more personalized experience on Google Assistant for Indians, users will now be able to give commands like “Ok Google, Mera Gana Chala Do (Ok Google Please Play My Song)” and Assistant will do the needful. Google Assistant is also being modified to take and follow a range of commands that can help consumers everyday. Consumers will now be able to ask and get answers for questions like “Ok Google, How Late Is My train” or “Ok Google, How Much Data is Left On My Phone”.
To do the same, Google is powering popular local apps that can provide real-time data and other location related information. Google has also partnered with Airtel to enable Voice assistant to provide data related information and enabling recharge of phone using the voice of consumers. Google Assistant can also be used as a teacher using Hello English to learn English from Hindi.
Google announced a slew of other tweaks regarding Indian languages that will be implemented to the platform soon. Google is adopting project Navlekha to bring more Indian content online. The IT giant is also going to bring content in languages people prefer with Bilingual Feed and Google Go. The platform has been launched in Hindi and English today; Tamil, Marathi, Malayalam and Telugu will be added soon.
Users will now get a definition of the word they are looking for in both English and Hindi, and soon in the coming weeks will get the same in Marathi and Tamil too, says Google.
