While Siri may claim the top spot for being a voice assistant with sass, Google voice search is the true voice assistant by any measure. Once a standalone app, Google voice search is now an essential part of the Google Now environment. But “OK Google” is only useful for English speakers, or is it?

Although Google voice search is set to one default language, you can easily use multiple languages as well. Since most of the speakers in the world are bilingual, having Google voice search in two or more languages is always fun.

How to use multiple languages in Google voice search

Head over to the Google app settings from the app drawer, or swipe over to the Google Now cards and select “Settings”. In the Settings menu, open the “Voice” section and look for the “Languages” tab from the list of options.

The pop-up list will show your dozens of languages, with English (UK or US) select as the default based on your system settings. Apart from the default language, you can select up to 5 more languages to add to your Google voice search.

However, make sure you press and hold the language that you wish to keep as your primary choice. Although you can select 5 languages in voice search, you can only switch back and forth with one language per search.

For instance, if you type in Spanish, Google will activate voice search for the same, allowing you to use voice search in Spanish too. However, you cannot make use of two languages at once in voice search simultaneously.
