It's done, Google Assistant is now bilingual. He can indeed speak two languages ​​at the same time, provided for the moment that they are chosen from this list: English, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish (while he will support around thirty languages ​​in total at the end of of year). This is the first voice assistant to inaugurate such a function, competitors Alexa, Siri, Cortana or Bixby being themselves unable (at the same time, with regard to Bixby, he still does not speak Spanish…). Support for two languages ​​at the same time is being deployed on almost all devices that work with the Google Assistant, whether smartphones, tablets or speakers. On the other hand, devices integrating a screen such as the Lenovo Smart Display or the JBL Link View will not receive this update immediately. 



Once enabled, this feature requires no special attention from users. In a household where two languages ​​are spoken, it is thus possible to switch from one to the other to speak to Google Assistant without worry. By relying on LangID and new voice recognition models boosted with artificial intelligence, Google explains that it has succeeded in developing a system capable of avoiding most misunderstandings and of being effective regardless of the language in which it is used. we talk to him. Of course, the products will respond to the user in the language in which the questions were formulated to them. On his blog, Google deciphers the operation of the system, and suggests that it is not impossible that his virtual assistant will soon even be able to speak three languages ​​at the same time.
