Developers will now be able to create apps in Spanish , Italian , Indian and even Portuguese as new languages added to the assistant is one of the biggest additions the company has ever added to support new languages.
Another major update feature Google added will allow developers to create applications that can take advantage of having both Google Home and any phone that supports Google Assistant, this feature allows the Home device to send requests to smartphones for completion of actions. Google also allows apps to recognize the requests, so that you don’t have to call out the request, there by knowing the difference for instance, between turning off the lights and using Philips Hue app to turn off the light.
