Speak five different languages, and Google Search will still understand you

Select up to five languages for Google Search to understand during one session

Google Search for Android supports fifty languages. But whenever you switched from English to Spanish for example, you had to change the settings. Not any more. Make one small change, and Google Search for Android will now allow you to speak five languages at one time. The app will understand perfectly what you are saying. You do need to to speak a minimum of one sentence in each language.

With this new feature, you can search for a movie theater in English, and then dictate a text to a buddy by speaking in German. Google plans on adding more languages and features over time. We should point out that this new capability is available only for the Android version of the app.

With the change, Google Search will automatically figure out which language you are using and will respond to you in that language, if it is warranted. The new feature is on version 3.6 of Google Search, which can be found in the Google Play Store. From your device's apps menu, select Google Settings, and click on Search & Now -> Voice -> Languages, and select the languages you want to use. It can't be any easier. And yes, once again Google makes this a much smaller world.

I'll put this to the test. But I need to learn 4 other languages first.

I've been waiting a long time for this ability without switching back and forth.

Cool, no need of specific accents.

It does work quite well if you speak in short sentences. It gets the languages mix up if you say only a single word.
