Home Automation: Google Assistant, Amazon Cloud Cam Pick Up New Abilities

Google, today announced the launch of Google Assistant in Hindi. During 2017, Google launched the Assistant in Hindi the instant-messaging platform Allo.

Even better, the same support is coming soon to Android Lollipop-powered handsets, Android Oreo (Go edition) phones, and iPhones running iOS 9.1 and above.

Do note, to access Hindi Google Assistant, you will need to update your Google Search app to the latest version, and set your device language to Hindi.

Protestors Leave Thousands of Shoes at US Capitol
Some of the shoes (notably elementary and middle school sizes) were donated by families that lost their children to gun violence. One of the parents in attendance Tuesday was Tom Mauser, whose son was killed in the Columbine school massacre.

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. "Once an action is built, you can just say "Ok Google, talk to" and access the service or content straight through your Google Assistant", Purvi Shah, Technical Program Manager, Assistant was quoted as saying in a press release. We also received word last month that Google Assistant was already capable of understanding Hindi, but that there were some issues that needed to be ironed out for it to be a complete version like the one that is now available. That particular command could: take your phone off silent; adjust lights, plugs, thermostats and more products to a certain setting; tell you about the day's weather, commute, calendar, or reminders; and adjust media volume.

Google says that the Assistant "is built on two decades of experience in Search as well as natural language understanding, computer vision, and understanding user context". Why is this significant amidst the constant stream of updates to "smart" speaker offerings we hear you ask?

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.
