Language and Locale Support

Actions that you write for the Google Assistant are supported in the following languages with the corresponding locales. By default, your Action:

  • Supports all regions (countries), as long as your users have set their Assistant locale to one of our supported locales.
  • Uses a TTS voice that corresponds to the user's Assistant locale. You can override this behavior and choose a specific TTS voice that doesn't change based on the user's Assistant locale.

Migrate to high-quality voices

Starting March 4, 2019 the Actions on Google platform will support higher quality Wavenet voices for a subset of languages and locales. These voices are rated with a mean opinion score (MOS) of greater than 3.6, thus providing listeners with higher voice fidelity. We've tagged the new voice samples below with a NEW! notice.

We will automatically apply the new voices if there is a new voice for the voice option used in your project.

If there's no new voice for the voice option currently set in your Action, you can switch the voice option by going to Setup > Invocation in the Actions console.

For example, we provide only one new voice (Female 1) for Italian. If you set Female 1 in your project, we will automatically change the voice to Wavenet. If you currently have Male 1, Male 2, or Female 2 set in your project, you need to switch the voice option to Female 1 to get the new voice.
