Original post: Launched in September this year, Google Allo is a smart messaging app that also includes Google Assistant that helps you get any kind of information you want and gets things done.
To make the Google Allo experience better, easier, and more relevant for non-English speakers, the company is introducing Hindi language capabilities to the Assistant and Smart Reply in Google Allo. Starting today, these new features will begin rolling out on Google Allo, and will be available to all users over the coming few days.
Since it’s launch, Google Allo has received tremendous response, especially in India, which has one of the highest number of Google Allo users. The Google Assistant, in particular, is one of the most loved features in Google Allo – one in every 12 messages in group chats are messages to the Google Assistant. We are enthused by this and today’s launch enables us to extend these features to the next millions of users in a language of their choice.– Amit Fulay, Group Product Manager, Google
The Google Assistant in Allo will now understand and respond in Hindi. To start using the Assistant in Hindi, all you need to do is to say “Talk to me in Hindi” or adjust the language setting on your device.
Smart Reply in Allo makes it easier for users to respond quickly, even when on the go. Now, powered by Machine Learning, Google Allo not just understands text, but can also help with suggested responses in Hindi to images sent by friends and family. It will recognize the language you’re chatting in and begin to show suggested responses in that language.
