On Valentine’s Day, Google India poked fun at lonely hearts who ask Google Assistant to be their valentine. Wishing people on the occasion of Valentine’s Day, Google India asked Indian users a very serious question: “Ok Google, will you be my valentine?” much like a person could ask their device.
Ok Google, will you be my valentine?

Ahead of the Valentine’s Week, the tech giant’s Indian handle had poked at singles saying the only recommendation they will get on YouTube is the song ‘Tanhaai’, that means loneliness in Hindi.
The search giant also announced that the Google Assistant can help make the day a little more special. On it’s blog, the tech company wrote, “On your Assistant-enabled smart speaker or Smart Display, like Nest Hub Max, just say ‘Hey Google, turn up the love’ and let the magic unfold. The Assistant will play smooth jazz music and if you have color-changing smart lights, they’ll glow romantic red and purple tones.”
Last year, Google India had revealed that many users had asked the virtual assistant to marry them.
