Google voice search can now understand search corrections

Google has revealed that the voice search feature of Android is now smarter and can understand search term corrections.

According to the search giant, the voice search sometimes misinterprets search terms but now users can follow up with “no I said” and the right search term and the application will understand and fix the search results.

This feature will be especially useful for the non-English users or people with different accents as Google voice search isn’t always perfect with understanding different English accents.

It is already live in Google Search on Android, so if you have the latest version of the app on your Android device, you can start correcting Google.
