Google Voice Now Understands British People! (And Others, As Well)

Google Voice Now Understands British People! (And Others, As Well)

Find the British accent unintelligable? So did Google Voice, it seems, until a recent update brought British English to the mix. Google Voice now understands French, German, Italian and Spanish as well.

To use Voice Actions, simply say one of the following commands (spoken in any of the previously mentioned languages):

  • send text to [contact] [message]
  • call [business]
  • call [contact]
  • go to [website]
  • navigate to [location/business name]
  • directions to [location/business name]
  • map of [location]

PS: Google Voice's confused relationship with British English reminds me of the equally-confused (or is it just racist?) relationship between Mira and Marjory on Little Britain:
