So far, IFA 2018's been a pretty big deal for Google. Wear OS is confirmed to get a brand-new UI starting next month and the Google Home Max is finally making its way to the United Kingdom.

Now, Google's announced that the Google Assistant is officially bilingual starting today.

Google's been steadily updating the Assistant to work with more and more languages, and with the new bilingual feature, you'll now be able to talk to the Assistant on your phone, Google Home, Smart Display, etc. in two different languages without having to switch back and forth between them in the app.

The Assistant can be configured to understand any pair of English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Japanese, with support for additional languages coming in the next few months.

This feature should be rolling out to Assistant devices now, so be sure to keep an eye out for it!
