Google Search updated with “OK Google” support for English (India)


Google Search update 3.5.15Google 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.
