The search on it already offers up to 47 regional languages around the world rolling out its services for India, where the Smart phone market is booming right now and the voice-based searches is also set to grow in the near future, reports IBN live.

Apparently, Google has worked with close to 700 volunteers in India to get a hold of the pronunciation of words to generate a specified language model for the Indian accent to power the voice search.

We’re delighted to showcase the improvements we’ve made to Search for Indian users today. These features demonstrate Google’s commitment to India and to continually improving Indian users’ search experience,” said Mr. Sandeep Menon, Head of Marketing, Google India, reports free press journal.
