Google Assistant now supports all three official languages in Belgium

Michail, 28 May 2019

Belgian residents finally got the country’s three official languages supported by the Google Assistant. Now users will be able to ask and receive contextual information in Dutch, French and German.

Google has collaborated with popular third-party apps to bring support for services from the Belgian national railway company, mobile providers Telenet and Proximus as well as ING bank and Belgian Post.

According to reports, the rollout is still underway so not all users will be able to take advantage of the new language options immediately. You can always check manually by going into the Google Assistant settings menu and then search in the languages sub-menu.

Those who already got their hands on the update report that some key features like local news sources are missing. Google Assistant will run on any Android device with Android Lollipop or iOS 10 and up.
