Google Voice Search expands language compatibility

Now available in over two dozen languages, Google has expanded their signature Google Voice Search to include support for Indonesian, Malaysian and Latin American Spanish.

Thanks to a Google project known as Word of Mouth, different languages from all around the world are being added to Voice Search all the time. First introduced in 2010, Word of Mouth is a “crowd-sourcing effort to collect the most accurate voice data possible.” Essentially, Google has distributed phones world-wide and asked avid fans of El Goog to collect as many real-life voice samples as possible. Thousands of hours of samples later, compatibility for new languages come to Voice Search as accurately as possible.

Next time you use Google Voice search, just remember, without you, it just wouldn’t be the same.
