News from Google Assistant! At least for USA Google Smart Speaker users. American users will soon also benefit from innovations on a smartphone or smart screen.

Pronouncing names is very personal. This is important for recognizing the correct name when giving a voice command, but it also ensures a more natural impression of the conversation. Hence, English speaking users can train pronouncing names with the Google Assistant, but other languages will follow “soon”:
