    The select third-party apps currently available to use with "Ok Google" voice search were listed on a Support page with the voice search command for each app.

    The voice service recognizes around nine languages, including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Russian. The feature comes with a single API key that supports multiple devices such as phones, tablets and Android Wear-based wearables.
