Chinese speaking Google Assistant introduced in Taiwan

26 October 2018 5

Google’s AI-based Assistant can do wonders. We have seen already seen a couple of demos from Google showing the prowess of the Assistant. Google has also been expanding the support in various countries and languages and keeping up to that momentum, Google Assistant has been launched in Taiwan.

As a part of this roll-out, the Google assistant would be available on both phones and tablets which can use Chinese (traditional) language. In terms of compatibility, the device needs to have Android 5.0 or above along with 1GB of RAM at least. To initiate Google Assistant, the process remains the same wherein the user needs to tap and hold on to the home button.


While Google Assistant can communicate in multiple languages, this is the first time it will be able to communicate in the Chinese language. It can be used to carry out simple tasks like calculations, translations, setting reminders, calculations, and conversions, navigations etc. and can also control media apps like Youtube, Netflix Spotify, and MyMusic etc.

Google has stated that this roll-out is being carried out in a phased manner, and will not be available on WearOS or Google Home devices at the moment. In case you have not got the download alert, you can visit the play store link below to download it for free.
