Google Assistant can now speak Arabic!
May 5, 2019

But it’s limited to Saudi Arabia and Egypt at the moment.

Good news for Arabic speakers in Saudi Arabia and Egypt: Google Assistant can now answer your questions and tell you jokes in Arabic. Arabic support was launched last Tuesday, and even features localized Saudi and Egyptian dialects.

Google Assistant is available as an app on iOS, but is a built-in feature on most Android smartphones and on Google’s own line of smart speakers. It lets you control nearly every aspect of your Android device, and if it’s connected to different smart appliances in your home, Google Assistant can also send commands on it too.

Arabic support also includes giving you the weather forecast in the local language including information on prayer times and other local events.

Enabling Arabic support on Google Assistant would be automatically be enabled if your device language is set to Arabic. Since Arabic is a primary language in the reason, it shouldn’t take time before support for other countries will also arrive.
