Phone carriers will also be able to develop their own custom integrations with Google Assistant. Googlesays that offering 30 different languages covers 95 percent of Android users, so while they don't plan to stop at only 30 languages, that's a good place to aim.
Perhaps the most important announcement is the Assistant's expansion to even more languages. "Multilingual" capabilities are coming in English, French and German first, allowing you to switch between the three at any time without fear of running into a language barrier with your Google Assistant.
The first new languages will be Danish, Dutch, Hindi, Indonesian, Norwegian, Swedish, and Thai, with more coming at some point after that first wave.
That's pretty cool and, hopefully, this should make Google Assistant much more useful in a wider range of situations, not just when you're walking to your office in San Francisco or roaming the streets of London with the phone in your hand asking "When's my next flight?" in ideal English. Originally announced alongside the Pixel 2 phones past year, routines will let users combine multiple actions into a single command, like turning off the lights and lowering the thermostat when you say, "OK Google, good night".
In the coming weeks, you also be able to set reminders on your phone based on locations. This year, we're bringing these efforts together as the Assistant Mobile OEM program, which will enable OEMs to build deeper integrations between the Assistant and device features, using natural language understanding and the conversational interfaces of the Assistant.
The first of those integrations will be seen from LG, Sony Mobile, and Xiaomi, Google says.
Location-based reminders: You can already set reminders based on a location with the Assistant on your phone. It'll basically be like any other third-party action: you'll have to say something along the lines of, "Hey Google, ask Sprint how much data I have left", rather than simply being able to ask "how many minutes do I have left?" and your phone automatically knowing you're on Sprint thanks to your SIM card.
