Google Assistant is a person of the world. A cosmopolitan AI, at ease in any environment or culture. To prove it, the voice assistant has now learned to speak two languages at once, giving Google Assistant the edge in bilingual households.
The new feature means you can alternate between two languages without having to change any settings on your Google Home or other Assistant-supporting device. You will, however, need to enable the feature first.

Right now Assistant can speak English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese - but Google says it plans to add support for 30 languages by the end of the year.

1) Open the Google Home app.
2) Hit the hamburger menu in the top left corner.
3) Select More settings.
4) Tap Preferences.
5) Tap Assistant language.
You should see your default language, and underneath it, a plus symbol. Tap that to add your second language of choice. And then - that's it. Congratulations, your Google Assistant just became a little bit smarter. Fantastisch.
