Google Assistant hits Android Nougat and Marshmallow devices in Brazil, Germany and Australia

LG G6 with Google Assistant

Google Assistant is getting even better with the latest updates. While there are no new features to brag about, the digital assistant has just landed in three more markets.

It all started with Brazil, where the South American country’s Android users received an update that brings support for Brazilian Portuguese to their devices, be it on Android Marshmallow or Android Nougat. This follows the company’s announcement at May’s Google I/O event that it will be rolling out up to four more languages by the end of this summer.

Well, it’s indeed happening as the company is not just in Brazil, but also in Germany and Australia. The two countries are also getting support for the Google Assistant as at the time of this writing. This really steps up the Assistant, which despite being over a year old, only supports a handful of languages in specific regions across the globe.

Once the Google Assistant hits your Marshmallow or Nougat phone, you must set it up first. If you haven’t done so, a notification should appear on your phone asking you to do so. Alternatively, try long-pressing the home key and see what comes up. The tutorial to set it up is quick and easy and in no time, you’ll be able to start using the Google Assistant on your phone.

Using this digital assistant, you can get answers to questions you ask, search your screen, find nearby restaurants and do a bunch of other things.
