Google's Android is the most popular mobile operating system in the world, and with India being a key smartphone market, the search giant is putting its efforts to support the national language.

Google announced past year that its virtual assistant, Google Assistant, would be getting multistep routines that allow users to execute a number of actions by using only one voice command. You can launch Google Assistant by touching and holding the Home button or simply say "Ok Google". Moreover, it ultimately opens an avenue to let non-English speaking users experience Google Assistant right by passing commands in Hindi.

For an overview of all Actions already available for the Hindi Assistant, you can check out this site. Starting now, you can tell your Google Home to remind you to pick up coffee the next time you're at the grocery store. The Assistant in Hindi is rolling out to Android phones 6.0+ (Marshmallow and above) and will soon be coming to Android 5.0 Lollipop, Android Oreo (Go edition), and iPhones (iOS 9.1 and above). Instead, the Google Home asked when I wanted the full instruction to be issued as a regular reminder. The Google Home range of speakers was toted to make your domestic life easier, and it wouldn't be very good at it if it lacked the ability to remind you of stuff. Here, actions can be created for Google Assistant in Hindi which can be used for different services by simply saying "Ok Google, talk to".
