Neighbourhood Technology Desk/Avi Arya: Google on Tuesday said that its smart speakers, Google Home and Google Home Mini will soon get Hindi language support. Google Home and Google Home Mini are priced at Rs 9,999 and Rs 4,499, respectively. The smart speakers are powered by Google Assistant, and the company has confirmed Hindi language support by the end of the year. Google had recently rolled out Hindi language support for its AI-based Assistant.
The top surface of the devices has LEDs that light up when Google Home recognizes “OK Google”. Google Home has been designed with two microphones that utilize a technique called “neural beam forming” to enable accurate far-field voice recognition. Google has simulated hundreds of thousands of noisy environments and applied Machine Learning (ML) to recognize patterns that allow it to filter and separate speech from noise.
