In February, Google did mention that the AI-based voice assistant will be available in more than 30 languages by end of the year. There were some hints which Google has dropped in January that the Hindi language has been enabled on the Google Assistant.

Google Assistant, the smart virtual Assistant part of Android phones, can now talk in Hindi. Google Assistant in Hindi will be soon rolling out to more devices running iOS 9.1 and above, and even those with the older Android 5.0 Lollipop. If you want to try it out, the all you need to do is head to Language Settings of your device and change it to Hindi to see the changes.

Google Assistant in Hindi. Google Assistant is now available in eight languages including English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, and Portuguese (Brazil) on Android phones. Moreover, it ultimately opens an avenue to let non-English speaking users experience Google Assistant right by passing commands in Hindi.

No hands needed to quickly send text messages, set reminders and alarms, as well as get directions for the fastest route to work or the easiest way around town. For example, while you can specify a particular type of store to trigger a reminder - Walmart for groceries, for example, or Starbucks for coffee beans - there doesn't appear to be a way to define a specific store. The user will then have to update the Google Search app to the latest version.

For now, devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or above will be able to access the feature. To look for a nearby Punjabi restaurant, you can say 'Sabse kareeb Punjabi restaurant kahaan hain?', or for latest updates on cricket you could say 'Cricket ka score kya hain?'.

In recent events, Google had rolled out new features for its AI assistant which is said to give users more control over the connected devices.
