Google’s Voice Search now supports another 13 languages

by: SamAugust 17, 2012

Google’s famous voice search functionality already operates in 29 languages and is built into nearly every Android phone. Now another 13 have been added to that list, bringing the grand total to 42 languages and accents.

The new languages are:

  • Slovak
  • Swedish
  • Romanian
  • Norweigan
  • Basque
  • Bulgarian
  • Finnish
  • Galician
  • Hungarian
  • Catalan
  • Icelandic
  • European Portuguese
  • Serbian

If you are a resident of these newly added countries and haven’t had the chance to experience a great piece of voice-search technology: grab your phone and give it a try. Remember that you need to be connected to the Internet for the app to even recognise your words before it searches them.

The update is being rolled out slowly but surely. Google promise a full rollout worldwide by next week.

If you haven’t already got the Voice Search app, check out the Google Play link.

    What is the version number on this? Least for the cited version. Play store says 2.1.4
    My phone says 3.0.1 Currently the open Firefox page is signed in on a different account than my GSIII. This version number does not alter if I am signed out or am using the same account as my GSIII.
    Mostly I am interested in the screen cap where results are sown within the app vs opening default browser or chrome. Maybe this is part of the failfix for Apple? I hate the app because I have to leave it to get the answer, because if I have to go to chrome I might as well as open it and search there.
