Google has released an update for the Google Search for Android app, which brings a number of improvements including “Ok Google” hotword support for English (India).
Although Google doesn’t mention the Ok Google support for English (India) in the official change-log, we have checked and can confirm from our end that you will now be able to just say “Ok Google” to initiate a voice search. Ok Google is even more useful with Google Now launcher, in which the hotword works anywhere on the home-screen.
Among other changes, Google Search 3.5.15 includes the following new features for Google Now (Android 4.1+ users only).
- Things to watch on Chromecast
- If you commute via public transit, you can set an alarm when it’s time to get off the train/bus.
- Bug fixes and performance improvements
The updated app is rolling out now and will shortly reach your Android devices.
