New Delhi: Google Tuesday said it has upgraded the technology under which voice search features become compatible with Indian diction.

The company hosted an event called “Google Cafe” here showcasing the search experience for Indian users.
“From asking Google where you can watch the latest movie to finding out cricket scores at the touch of a button, Google is there to help you get the answers you need,” said Sandeep Menon, head of marketing, Google India.

“We are delighted to showcase the improvements we have made to Search for Indian users today. These features demonstrate Google’s commitment to India and to continually improving Indian users’ search experience,” Menon said.
The event also featured footballer Baichung Bhutia, singer and model Shibani Dandekar, and chef Kunal Kapur, who demonstrated the many ways Google can help users.

“Voice has always been the most natural way to interact with a phone, as speaking is typically faster and easier than typing. Google hopes to make Search accessible to an even larger group of Indian users, to help them find the information they need at just the right moment,” Google said in a statement.
