Google has updated its search applications for iOS and Android, adding understanding of specific requests and oral responses in several languages, including French.
If it was previously possible to do voice searches in French via their iOS or Android device, the application does not always accurately interpreted the questions, even if it was sometimes the case. Thanks to a new update released Thursday, the experience is now further not only in the language of Molière, but also in German and Japanese.
Google Voice Search on Android and iOS is now able to answer more questions aloud as, for example, “What is the size of the Eiffel Tower,” “Who invented the cinema” or “What is the temperature in Paris “. Interestingly, it is possible to play three issues without repeating: after asking temperature Paris, adding “And to Lyon? “The application will include this new issue is related to the previous and therefore give the Lyon temperature. The responses are made in writing but also orally, accurately, using real-time information from Google Now.
Google does not give a complete list of all commands in Search, but a video posted there is little in English allows for fifty tracks to experiment in the application, such as sending SMS, package tracking, consultation of the agenda or traffic disturbances. The answers are accompanied in most cases an oral message.
The update is available and settled herself on most terminals. If it does not, go to Google Play and the App Store.
