Google Assistant is now available in Polish

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

Beta tests for Google Assistant's Polish language support have been going on for several months, so it's no surprise to see the feature officially launch. If you speak Polish, you will now (or soon, at least) be able to use Assistant in that language. Developers can also build Actions on Google in Polish.

Just like any other localization, Assistant's Polish support doesn't only mean that it will answer your regular queries in the same language.

Tip: Google Assistant is trilingual (and more), but only on phones

Thursday, September 6th, 2018

Last week, Google officially rolled out bilingual support for Assistant, but as with everything related to Assistant and languages, there were limitations. You can only choose between six main languages (and a few country variants) as the main option, and you're restricted even further when it comes to your secondary language. Turns out there's a small trick to make Assistant understand more than these, but only on your phone if it's set to that other language.

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

Back in February, Google said that it would be adding 30 more languages to Google Assistant "over the next few months." Of the languages that had been name-dropped at the event, only Hindi and Indonesian have been added, but another has just joined the club: Thai.

To be clear, Thai has only been added to Google Assistant on phones and tablets (both Pixels and non-Pixels). It's still not on Allo, Google Home, or Wear OS.

Google publishes Material Design writing guidelines

Saturday, June 9th, 2018

Material Design isn't just about shapes and color palettes. Google has published a page with writing guidelines for developers, meant to keep things straightforward and understandable in apps built to Material specifications. The rules emphasize simple and direct language, as well as avoiding ambiguity.

The page has a series of tips with "Do" and "Don't" examples for each. The guidelines are clearly slanted toward apps, and don't go into too much detail; you won't find anything about pronoun-antecedent agreement here.
