Did you know: Google Now voice search automatically recognizes multiple languages

The 'Ok, Google' always-on voice recognition has come as a blessing for people who just want to do quick things with their phone without ever touching the screen, but did you know that you can have Google's voice search automatically recognize between various languages?

If you speak multiple languages, or if you live in a family where two or more languages are spoken, or if you're learning a new language and want to use it, this option is a big convenience.

You just need to download the Google app (in case your phone does not already have it installed) and add the additional languages you want to use for search. We've tested it ourselves with four languages and it all worked like a charm, every time correctly understanding, transcribing and answering our queries. You can also try it by just following the simple steps outlined below.
