Why can't Google Assistant speak English but my phone is in a language not supported by Google?

Community Member

Hello! I've had an English-speaking Google Assistant in my home for quite some time now. I've been wanting to make one on my own phone for a while now, but I've noticed that it doesn't work because my phone's system language isn't supported. Every time it asks me what language my assistant should speak I say English but it won't let me activate it because it's looking at the system language. Is there a way for the Google Assistant to speak in English and the language of my phone to be in Bulgarian (an unsupported language)? Thanks in advance and have a nice day!

Hi  PreskoPresko,


Thanks for posting here in the Google Nest Community.

Good question. Let me help you. We're glad to hear you're interested in adding Bulgarian language on your phone’s Google assistant. However, this is not supported at the moment. Check the link below to know more about the supported languages that you can use on your phone's Google assistant.
