How to use Hindi Assistant in Google Allo?
To start using the Hindi Assistant in Google Allo, you will have to say, “Talk to me in Hindi”. You can also do it in another way by going to the settings and changing the language preference from there. The company has also announced that the app will use the machine learning algorithms to understand the images in addition to the text.
Google said in a press statement:
“Smart Reply will recognise the language you’re chatting in and begin to show suggested responses in that language.”
Amit Fulay, Group Product Manager, Google said:
“Since its 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.”
