Technology giant Google, as promised, introduced Hindi language capabilities in its Google Allo smart messaging app. Google’s Allo app will now be able to include “Smart Reply” in Hindi language apart from being a Hindi Assistant. The new updates in “Google Assistant” and “Smart Reply” features will roll out on Allo from December 5 on Android and iOS devices and will be available to all users in the coming days, Google said in a statement. If you start chatting in Hindi, the “Smart Reply” will show a user suggestions in that language. So, now you can respond to your friends question “kya haal hai” with “Sab theek Hai” with a single tap. Apart from answers, Google Assistant in Google Allo can also provide latest news, weather, traffic, sports, or upcoming flight status.
Google launched Allo in September this year. The company added that Google Allo has the highest score of users in India. “Google Allo has received tremendous response in India which has one of the highest number of Google Allo users,” said Amit Fulay, Group Product Manager of Google. 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, Fulay added.
