If you are majorly looking forward to making most out of the Google Voice support, but disappointed since the support doesn't really understand your dialect, here's a treat for you.
Google has now offered support for the Google Voice service by adding Indian dialect to it. Apparently, previous to this, the Google Voice could only massively understand the American dialect, while the Indian one was a bit difficult for it to decipher. But all that has changed now with the support.
Google India today hosted a Google Cafe in Delhi showcasing the Search experience for Indian users. This included the English Voice Search in the Indian accent, the Knowledge Graph, and Google Now.
"This demo-driven event marks a milestone in Google's continual effort to improve the Search experience that will help Indian users find answers on the web more quickly and efficiently," the official release for the same states.
The event featured a host of special guests such as Indian footballer Baichung Bhutia, singer and model Shibani Dandekar, and Chef Kunal Kapur, who demonstrated the many ways Google can help you throughout your day.
From finding out currency conversions to comparing the health benefits of olive oil and butter, or even setting an alarm for your phone, everything is accessible now just with your voice.
"From asking Google where you can watch the latest movie to finding out cricket scores at the touch of a button, Google is there to help you get the answers you need," said Sandeep Menon, Head of Marketing, Google India.
"We're delighted to showcase the improvements we've made to Search for Indian users today. These features demonstrate Google's commitment to India and to continually improving Indian users' search experience."
There is hardly a chance that you haven't still come across the Google Voice feature on your Android phone. But just in case you haven't, go to Settings within the Google search app, select Voice>Language> choose English > English (India) , and you're ready to go.
You can also use your voice to power your typing in an email or an SMS. If you are an Android user, you can set up Google voice typing under your phone's Settings > Language and Input > and choosing Google voice typing.
There's also the Knowledge Graph which is Google's growing model of the hundreds of millions of people, places and things that make up our world.
"Using ambitious technology and massive Google-scale computing, the Knowledge Graph is able to make sense of connections between these elements and give you more information that's relevant to your query based on this sophisticated database."
