If you follow any news around smart assistants, you probably know that they tend to focus on American English first, and then gradually gain support for English with accents, from Australian to British, and then branch out to other cultures and languages. Well, Google Assistant can now help you out in Spanish on Home devices.
You will still have to use the same wake words, either "OK Google" or "Hey Google", says Google, but once you do that you can say whatever you want in Spanish. Google Assistant will listen and respond in Spanish in turn.
The Spanish version of Google Assistant can do pretty much exactly what the English version of Google Assistant can do. That means your weather reports, sports scores, calendar reminders and more. In fact, here are a couple things you can say to Google Assistant in Spanish.
âOk Google, Â¿cÃ³mo serÃ¡ mi dÃa?â (A rundown of your day)
âOk Google, Â¿cuÃ¡ndo juega MÃ©xico?â (When Mexico plays next)
âOk Google, reproducir mi lista de reproducciÃ³n para hacer ejercicioâ (Listen to your top songs)
âOk Google, sube la temperatura del termostatoâ (Turn down the temperature)
âOk Google, cantamÃ© Las MaÃ±anitasâ (Celebrate your birthday)
