Google Voice Actions For Android Now In The U.K, France, and Germany

Last year, Google introduced Voice Actions for Android. It probably was and still is one of the coolest features, which Android has under its sleeve.

Initially, the Voice Actions feature was only available in the United States, and primarily to English speaking people. Today, Google has updated its Voice Actions app for Android to add support for more regions and languages. Beginning from today, Android users in the U.K, France, Italy, Germany and Spain can now enjoy voice actions in their localized language, including Spanish, British English, Italian, French and Germany.

For people who are unaware of Voice Actions, it allows you to speak to your phone to do certain actions like calling someone, texting someone or maybe search something on Google.

Below is a video of Google Voice Actions in action-:

Here is a list of all the different voice commands, which the Google Voice Actions app can understand-:
