Google announces the voice support for 8 more Indian languages”

The service is active, and users can efficiently perform their task in their native languages.

If you are among those more comfortable with using Tamil over English for smartphone searches, Google has found you an answer. "We are introducing support for 30 new languages today, of which eight are Indian languages", Google Technical Program, Manager Daan van Esch told the press.

Internet giant Google has rolled out voice search support for eight additional Indian languages, enabling consumers to use their voice for search queries on the Google app as well as Gboard app on Android.

The newly added languages include Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu. The new languages support feature is a part of the Gboard app on Android and the Google App too. On Gboard, users can choose the language in the Settings after installing the app on their phone.

Google says it worked with native language speakers in order to collect the speech samples. This process trained Google machine learning models to understand the sounds and words of the new languages and to improve their accuracy when exposed to more examples over time. The feature will be available in Google Search iOS app as well.

"Using your voice to dictate a message can be up to three times faster than typing".

Meanwhile, a report by Google-KPMG states that an estimated 536 million Indians are expected to use regional languages while remaining online by 2021 as compared to about 199 million users who are expected to access the web in English. According to Google, all the new languages will be available soon across all its apps and products, including Translate application.
