We are in the era of virtual assistants, however not everyone speaks our language, however the Internet giant took us into account and now Google Assistant will be available on Spanish in 2017.
Information provided by Scott Huffman, Google vice president of engineering and Google Assistant manager,who pointed out during the LG launch V30, that the virtual assistant would be available in Spanish and Italian before the end of 2017, good news when the virtual assistant recently made its debut in Korean.
Some news will be directly related to the recently announced LG V30, such as Google Assistant will have the ability to activate the angular camera, the cinema mode or the manual camera of the new LG mobile, in addition to other new commands that would work after a special alliance with this South Korean manufacturer.
Google takes on Bixby on its own ground
The fact that Google Assistant has arrived first in Korean and from the hand of LG leaves a clear message and that is that those from Mountain View are lining up to combat Samsung's Bixby on its home turf. In addition, a smart speaker compatible with Google Assistant was recently launched and it could have a very good reception in the market once it learns Spanish.
Google likes this type of battle, for example it tried to take some of the prominence out of Siri by coming to Apple's operating system.
On the new LG V30 the "Ok Google" command works natively, allowing voice recognition to function as a security system unlocking the mobile when a request is made to the virtual assistant, instead of using the fingerprint reader or facial recognition.
This virtual assistant will also be integrated into all LG IoT devices to execute commands on home appliances and smart speakers now that Google Assistant will be available in Spanish in 2017.
