Powered by a linguistic approach, the future of natural language processing will enable human-like understanding through a wide range of applications.

Google’s smart speaker, Google Home, has recently learned a new language. Launched at the end of June this year, Google Home is now speaking Spanish. As real as life itself, Spanish speakers can now listen to all summer hits without lifting a finger, or even look for restaurants nearby by indirectly saying, ‘Ok Google, tengo hambre’. This language update may serve to gain ground in the market of artificial intelligence-powered devices since Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world. Notwithstanding, Google Home's Spanish skills leave much to be desired. Bitext team has been testing it and, as a matter of fact, there is still room for improvement.
