Russian language support coming to Google Assistant

Himanshu, 09 January 2018

Quite a lot is going on with Google Assistant these days. New Assistant-powered TVs and speakers are being announced and the company just announced Assistant for smart displays as well. And now, it has come to light that the virtual assistant may learn a new language soon: Russian.

Yes, the company is reportedly running a closed beta program for Assistant's Russian language feature. Reports say support for this new language also features some unique functionalities like the ability to sing folk songs.

There's currently no information on exactly when support for Russian will go official. For those who aren't aware, Assistant already knows how to talk in English, Japanese, Indonesian, French, Italian, German, Hindi, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish.
