To be able to activate Google Assistant in Vietnamese, users need to go to Google apps> Add> Settings> Google Assistant> Assistant> Languages and choose "Tieng Viet (Viet Nam)". After that, they just need to hold the Home key to call Google Assistant and say the commands.

However, many others said they could not find option ‘Tieng Viet’ (Viet Nam) in ‘Languages’ menu. Experts said it is understandable, since Google still has not supported Assistant Tieng Viet in a large scale.

The major work that assistants have to do, such as reminders, alarms, timers, weather forecasts and directions, can be undertaken by Google Assistant.

After trying different ways (changing systematic languages, areas, restarting and updating apps), the team of engineers from GenK came to the conclusion that whether users can activate Assistant Tieng Viet doesn’t depend on users’ operation.

“If your accounts are luckily chosen by Google, you will find it very simple to activate Assistant Tieng Viet. If not, you will not be able to do this no matter what,” GenK reported.

As for iOS users, they will need an US Apple ID to be able to download Google Assistant from App Store. After that, they need to log in Google accounts and carry out the same operations.

Google Assistant can do many works for users. It can make calls and send messages with hands free. The feature is very useful, especially for those who drive cars.

Users can order Google Assistant to play music on Spotify. In fact, Google Assistant also supports music play on Google Play Music as well, but the service is not available in Vietnam. You can request Google Assistant to recognize songs though are listening to in surrounding environment.

Google Assistant can also do translations with voice. Instead of running Google Translate, one can use Google Assistant to translate some simple words and sentences and get results more quickly.

The team from GenK commented that Google Assistant's ability to recognize Vietnamese language is very good. It can correctly understand voices with northern, central and southern accents, and the voices of women and men.
