Google Assistant is now available in Hindi

Incidentally, Google Assistant had always supported Hindi conversations inside Google's messaging app, Allo.

Google Assistant is great for times when you are too lazy to type.

Google Assistant now only delivers Hindi text results while voice responses are in English. All you have to do is say "Ok Google", and ask it about the weather outside or the traffic conditions.

And speaking in Hindi with Assistant is Fun. For instance, it only works when the language is set as 'English (India)' and if you have turned on Hindi as your primary interface language on your Android phone, it won't take any commands in the native language. Also, it is only capable of delivering Hindi text results while its voice responses are in English.

Know All About Scorpene-Class Submarine Karanj And Its Features
INS Khanderi, the second submarine which is named after Chattrapati Shivaji's island fortress, was launched in January 2017. The launch comes as a big relief to the Indian Navy that has been anxious over the inordinate delay in the project.

We tried asking some questions to Google Assistant in Hindi on our OnePlus 5 that runs Android 8.0 Oreo, and, it worked fine for us. Note that in order to use Google Assistant in Hindi you need to change language setting on your phone to English (India). To do that, just go to Settings " Languages & input " Languages " Add a language " English " and select India.

Obviously, nothing is official for now, but we expect this feature to hit Google Assistant in the coming weeks. For example, if you ask "Hey Google, UP ki rajdhani kunsi hai", you will be shown the right answer.

A couple of months ago, Google had also announced that it is bringing Assistant to India's most popular feature phone - Reliance Jio's JioPhone. The internet giant has already added support for Indian languages across its products.
