The Google Assistant can be accessed by setting device language to Hindi. The user will have to update the Google Search app to the latest version then.
To start using the Assistant, touch and hold the Home button or say ‘Ok Google’ on smartphones that support the voice assistant. It also lets user send text messages, set reminders or get directions using voice commands. For instance, the user can ask questions in Hindi like, ‘sabse kareeb punjabi restaurant kahan hai?’ and ‘cricket ka score kya hai?’. It will also understand Hindi commands like ‘kal subah mujhe saat baje jagao’, ‘khichdi banae ka tareeka’ and more.
“The Google Assistant is truly Indian, it’s your helpful dost that speaks our language and understands the things you care about, from finding biryani recipes, to pulling up the latest cricket score or finding directions to the nearest ATM. In order to make it even more useful to Indians overtime, developers and businesses can now build actions for the Hindi Assistant through the developer platform actions on Google. Once an action is built you can just say “Ok Google, talk to” and access the service or content straight through your Google Assistant,” Technical Program Manager said.
