On the other hand, it also aims at helping out users who are not familiar with the script of the language. Moreover, the Android users can use voice search to navigate to different settings and features.All that the users need to do is select the language from the Voice settings menu in Google app.

Thankfully the enhanced voice search options are also available on Google search in iOS.

Google has apparently trained the voice command module by collecting speech samples and has also spared some efforts on the phonetics. This is expected to improve the accuracy, and the app will also get better with more usage. Google had earlier announced a slew of products that are aimed at dissolving the language barrier; this also lead the company to make the new language API’s available across other Google Apps such as Translate. With this update in place, Gboard on Android supports dictation in a total of 119 languages.
