After English, Hindi is the second most used language on Google Assistant, the artificial intelligence powered assistant of the United States’ technology giant, reports The Hindu.

According to the report, Google, which has been working on support for Indic languages across its products, said it will soon make Google Assistant available in Hindi on all Android TVs.

“Since introducing the Assistant in India nearly two years ago, we’ve introduced Hindi and 8 additional Indic languages...We’re thrilled to share that Hindi has become the second most used Assistant language globally after English across many types of devices in India...coming soon, the Assistant will also be available in Hindi on all Android TVs,” Google Vice President, Product Management, Manuel Bronstein said.

The Google Assistant, according to the company, is available in over 30 languages across 80 countries.

Google on Thursday (19 September) also announced that the users can now opt for Hindi language in the Assistant by just saying, "Hey Google, talk to me in Hindi” (or the Indian language of users’ choice) to start using the Assistant, without needing to dig around in settings.
