Chinese Language

I just recently purchased 2 nest mini v2. However I find the chinese / mandarin language very inaccurate.

Is Google planning to increase the accuracy of this language?

Hi All,

 

It's been a few days since we have heard from you. Just checking to see if you have any other questions or concerns. We're here to help!

Hi

So sorry. My reply is late. Did not noticed this.

Inaccurate as in the language allowed for Google Nest is only Taiwan Chinese / Mandarin language.

We in Malaysia uses the China Mainland Chinese / Mandarin as the spoken language.

Both of these languages have a difference in pronunciation like English US vs English UK

Due to this, the Google Nest is not able to accept accurate commands. However on the Google Home for phones, when we select China Mainland Chinese language, Google Home is able to accurately execute the commands.

When will the google nest be able to support China Mainland language? Like the google home on phones.

Will the google nest be updated when this language is available? Or we need to change the google nest to a newer version? Preferably no need to change as each one of these does not come cheap in M'sia

My parents do not understand English but wish to use the app. It would be great to support the Chinese language. Thanks so much!

Thanks for taking time to post your suggestions. Please SUBMIT FEEDBACK about what you are expecting on Google nest, if they'll get high number of requests then surely they'll get that done. 

Thanks

I believe he is referring to the Chinese language as per my post https://www.googlenestcommunity.com/t5/Speakers-and-Displays/Chinese-Language/m-p/26989#M6113

We would like to request Google to allow the Google Nest to support the China Chinese Language which is our parent's primary language. (Not too sure about abcnet)

In my country M'sia, spoken language is the China Chinese language and not Taiwan Chinese language.
