Google Assistant becomes bilingual, now understands two languages simultaneously
Google Assistant has just become smarter and, by extension, the way we use it is now simpler and smoother. Up until now, bilingual families had to switch between languages when using Google Assistant smart speakers, which was a bit annoying.

Starting this week, Google Assistant has been upgraded and now understands two languages at the same time. It means you can speak two languages interchangeably with Google Assistant on smart speakers and smartphones.

For example, English speakers can ask “Hey Google, what’s the weather like today?,” while German language speakers can ask “Hey Google, spiele die Fantastischen Vier.” For the time being, Google Assistant can understand any pair of languages within English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese.

However, Google states that it plans to expand this feature with additional languages in the coming months. Also, the search giant will introduce new phones and a broad range of devices and appliances for the home that support the Assistant from its growing ecosystem of partners in Europe.

I really hope this means within Android Auto the OS will look at the message and read it with the correct language engine.
