Google's been flexing its translation powers lately, and why not — for moving between at least some languages, Google Translate is as close as you can get to magic. A few users have started seeing translation options pop up on YouTube, both the web interface on desktops and the mobile app version.

Google Assistant is rolling out in Portuguese (Portugal)

Google Assistant is rolling out in Portuguese (Portugal)

It's been more than two years since Google Assistant became available in the Brazilian localization of Portuguese, but speakers of the Portugal version (pt-PT) were left waiting. Google has been working on that for over a year, and it began testing it in a closed beta a few months ago, but it appears ready to make it public now.

[Update: Polish too] Assistant-enabled smart displays can now speak Brazilian Portuguese

[Update: Polish too] Assistant-enabled smart displays can now speak Brazilian Portuguese

Back in November, Assistant added support for Brazilian Portuguese, and intelligent speakers were able to communicate with their owners in this language. Unfortunately, smart displays weren't so great at learning a new tongue and couldn't interact with people in Portuguese as quickly as Google Homes. However, the devices have now graduated and are fully fluent in the language, as Nest Hubs and similar devices can now handle conversations em português.

Gmail adds scheduled emails and improves Smart Compose for its 15th birthday (Updated)

Gmail adds scheduled emails and improves Smart Compose for its 15th birthday (Updated)

It's hard to believe that Gmail is fifteen years old today. In human years, that would equate to lots of sneaking around, unapproved driving, under-age drinking, and daily existential crisis about everything — i.e. normal teenage drama. But in Gmail years, this means we're getting some demure features. Namely, the email service finally lets us schedule emails.

[Update: Assistant actions get new voices on March 4th] Google Assistant improves support for French, German, Korean, and other languages

As with most of Google's products, Assistant is an incredibly powerful tool in the United States, but its functionality is limited in other countries. This is understandable, since there are dozens of other major languages worldwide with countless dialects, and speech recognition for each variation can take a while to develop. At Mobile World Congress, Google announced a massive expansion for Assistant's language support.

Google Lens is rolling out in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish

Google Lens' availability has been expanding ever since its first announcement. Although it started as an exclusive for Pixel owners in Google Photos, it quickly showed up in Assistant too, then rolled to non-Pixel devices in Photos, and eventually made it to those devices in Assistant too. However, through it all, Lens in Assistant and Photos has been limited to one language: English. Até que enfim it's now showing up for users in five other languages: French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Google Assistant is rolling out in Brazil with Brazilian-Portuguese

Google Assistant may be over a year old now, but it still only supports a select number of languages in a few countries. Back in May at Google I/O, it was announced that Assistant would support four more languages, including Brazilian-Portuguese, by the end of the summer. Lo and behold, Google Assistant in a Brazilian-Portuguese flavor is now available in Brazil.

Assistant will soon support French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, and Japanese, with more to come by the end of the year

Google has just announced at I/O that support for a host of new languages is inbound for Assistant.

Google Assistant's Smart Reply in Allo updated with Hindi and Brazilian Portuguese language support

Google Assistant's Smart Reply in Allo updated with Hindi and Brazilian Portuguese language support

Google's Allo chat program remains the only way to access the cool Assistant voice control tools without spending money (either on a new Pixel phone or a Google Home gadget). But as with a lot of Google products, it seems fairly focused on the American market. Today its Smart Reply linguistic powers get widened to two of the next-most-spoken languages on the planet, Hindi and Brazilian Portuguese. Support seems to be rolling out via a server-side switch, so don't be surprised if you can't immediately change to either language.
