Google Assistant will also be built into new voice-activated speakers.
The Smart Speaker war rages on between Google and Amazon, but it's become more competetive now that Apple and Samsung have also thrown their hats in the ring. Since the latest Google Smart Display speakers with a screen supports only English for the moment, that rules them out for now.
This past week, Google updated the assistant with the ability to deliver a daily dose of good news to users in the US. Typing a search query isn't a major bother in different languages and scripts, but using voice queries involves having to change the language settings.
In fact, whenever you quiz Assistant a ask, this is in a position to well mechanically examine what language you're speaking and answer in kind. Google plans to roll out more language support to the assistant in the coming months.
The Assistant can understand any pair of the following: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese. It's a step in opposition to the goal that Google supplied encourage in February to carry out Assistant fully multilingual without requiring you to dig into the settings and manually swap its language. Just in the past year, there are now triple the number of home devices and appliances that work with the Assistant in Europe from all the major local brands you're familiar with.
Google Home is already compatible with leading music streaming services, including YouTube Music, Google Play Music, Deezer and Spotify.
I'm looking forward to seeing how well Google Assistant makes use of your TV.
The idea is a bit of like an if-this-then-that approach for the Google Assistant, allowing you to create a routine based on your own phrase that does a bunch of other things. You would need to pre-select two languages you want it to recognize.
