Belgian residents finally got country’s three official languages supported by the Google Assistant. Now users asking the Android’s virtual assistant will finally get contextual information and suggestions in Dutch, French, and German. The device recently crossed a milestone offering support for 30 languages with presence in 80 countries.
Google has collaborated with popular third-party apps to bring support for services from Belgian national railway company, mobile providers Telenet and Proximus as well as ING bank and Belgian post. According to some reports, the new Belgium-ready Google Assistant is yet to roll out for all users in the country.
Since the rollout is gradual it may take several days to arrive for all devices from different manufacturers through an updated Assistant app. You can check if your device is ready going into the Google Assistant settings menu and then search in the languages sub-menu. According to some users who have already got their hands at the new version, some features like local news sources are still missing from this update.
Google Assistant is supported by any Android device with Android Lollipop and above, or iOS 10 and up. Currently, it’s one of the most important virtual assistants in the market, supported not only by smartphones but through several devices under the IoT (Internet of Things) segment.
