Google Assistant is going way too forward in the world of technology. The assistant is planning to serve the users in a much more practical way. Google recently announced the “interpreter mode” to be introduced with the voice assistant. It will be able to cover around 27 different languages of the world. With this, the users can hold a real-time conversation with those who don’t share the same language.

The user will be able to tell Google Assistant about the language he wants to get help in. For suppose you’re dealing with a Chinese and you don’t know the language, you can say “Hey, Google, be my Chinese interpreter” and your job is done. With this a smart text will reach out on your display, that will translate your words in another language. Along with this, it will show you the words another person is speaking in your native language.

The Supported Languages:

The list of languages supported by the Google Assistant of different countries is also revealed here:

  • Arabic
  • English
  • Greek
  • Chinese
  • Finnish
  • Hindi
  • Czech
  • French
  • Hungarian
  • Danish
  • German
  • Indonesian
  • Dutch
  • French
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Romanian
  • Russian
  • Slovak
  • Spanish
  • Swedish
  • Thai
  • Turkish
  • Ukrainian
  • Vietnamese

 

Basically, Google Assistant is a translator which doesn’t require money or excessive efforts of the users. Even the language in which a person is speaking does not need to be specified. As long as Google recognize that language, it will start translating. Only if two people start talking over, Google will get confused and will not be able to catch up the details.

In the recent event of CES, Google Assistant was tested with different languages, even with Mandarin. Google did understand the words but still, it can’t be termed as a universal interpreter. At the time Google Assistant is unable to understand the accent. It requires the user to be patient for the delay it may cause in understanding the sentences. And a long conversation with long sentences can be irritating for few.

Google Assistant started off with bilingual capabilities and now has upgraded to multilingual features. And this is eventually leading to another way forwards, for Google to make its own headphones that can support Google Assistant. And this is under practice since October or so. But the headphones are not as perfect as Google Assistant tries to be. It appears to show imperfect translation at the time and for that users have to work even harder.

The model is still under the process of getting better and will keep on going. Google is working on third-party smart displays as well and will be flourished in the next few months.
