Google updates Android, iOS search apps with new voice languages

updated 04:32 pm EST, Thu December 5, 2013

Apps were previously English-only

Google has updated its Android and iOS Search apps with voice support for French, German, and Japanese. The upgrades let people both speak commands and hear responses in the new languages. Previously, non-English speakers had to type in any search requests.

Google is promising to add more languages in the future. The current languages have some limitations, namely problems with some regional accents and dialects.
