How to change your Google Assistant from English to Hindi
I will guide you through two different ways to change your virtual assistant language from English to Hindi. If you are an Indian reader you definitely, are curious to try the Hindi version of Google Assistant. So, without further due let’s start.
To enable the Hindi Language for Google Assistant only, without changing the entire language to Hindi, follow the steps below:
- Go-to your Settings
- Tap into General Management
- Tap into Language & Input
- Now Language
- Add Language
- Now add English (Indian)
- Set the English (Indian) as Primary Language
- Now launch your Google Assistant
- Ask a Question in Hindi
That’s it, this method is simple. You can ask anything in Hindi. I am not sure if this method is working perfectly but the second method to change the language will definitely work.
This method will change the entire language of your smartphone to Hindi. I personally did try this version and it took me time to revert back to English from Hindi.
- Just launch Google Assistant by saying “Ok Google” or “Hello Google”
- Or you can launch your “Google Search” or “Google Now”
- Click on the menu button.
- Now Settings
- Under Settings click on Google Assistant “Settings”
- Now “Phone”
- Under “Voice and Speech” select “Assistant language”
- Now choose the Hindi language.
This method will change the entire language to Hindi. Check out the original screenshots taken on my personal smartphone.
I am not a Hindi language speaker, but as far as in my information this new language supports all the features of Google and Google Assistant also the Google Allo.
To test if the language was working or not, I got help from one of my Indian friends. He asked me to try these words: “India ki sabse badi Website” which means the biggest websites of India and my virtual assistant came up with some results mostly blog posts with top 10 lists. I am not sure the results were correct or not but the Hindi language works perfectly.
