Google has expanded its Google Search by Voice function to include an increasing number of languages.
Writing on its official blog, the brand explains how the feature is designed to help consumers and anyone using SEO marketing services search for things with the lowest number of keystrokes possible.
After initially launching the service in English and offering it to those in the US, UK, India and Australia, the company says "our goal is to bring Google Search by Voice to speakers of all languages".
Now, it has been expanded to include Japanese and Mandarin, while French, Italian, German and Spanish-speaking users were introduced to the tool a week ago.
Google states that these services have been made available in France, Germany, Italy and Spain to begin with, as local dialects are likely to affect the performance of the speech recognition.
This is not the only change Google has introduced of late, as it recently developed a new one-line format for IT professionals utilising its Ad Sitelinks feature.
