US based search giant Google on Thursday announced a major update for Assistant users in India where one can now make Assistant talk in Hindi by just asking “Ok Google, Hindi bolo or “Talk to me in Hindi.

Besides Hindi and English, users will also be able to find content in Marathi, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Gujarati and Malayalam.

The new update comes to the Google Assistant a day after Amazon announced that Alexa will support Hindi and Hinglish conversations.

“For many Indians, voice is increasingly becoming their preferred way to search, and today Hindi has become the second-most used Assistant language globally — after English,” Manuel Bronstein, Vice President, Product Management, Google said in a statement.

Google has finally added the feature on Gmail to send email as attachments without needing to download them first.

“We’ve heard from you that there are situations where attaching emails makes more sense than forwarding separate emails, like wanting to forward multiple messages related to a single topic. With this new functionality, you can do exactly that. Sending emails as attachments allows you to write a summary email message to your recipients, and attach the set of supporting emails that recipients can directly open in their mail client,” said Google in a blog post,” the company added,” the company said in a statement on Monday.

As soon as the feature arrives, a new “Forward as attachment” option in the three-dot menu will appear.

Users can either use the attach button when drafting a new email or can select multiple emails, and find the option of “Forward as attachment” in the three-dot menu.

Additionally, there is no need to create a brand new thread for replying to an email, as well. Just pop out the draft window when replying to someone, then drag and drop emails to it like a user would do while creating a new draft entirely.

The feature will be rolling out to all G suite editions gradually within the next month.
