Aiming to make its voice typing technology more inclusive and easy, Google has added 30 new languages to its 'voice search' including Sinhala and Tamil, bringing the total number of languages supported by speech recognition via Gboard on Android to 119.

The full list of languages listed as follows: Amharic, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Bengali, English (Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and Tanzania), Georgian, Gujarati, Javanese, Kannada, Khmer, Lao, Latvian, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Sinhala, Sundanese, Swahili, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu. In total, this brings the grand total of Gboard’s voice recognition to 119 languages.

Google is also adding the new languages to its Cloud Speech API and says it is working to integrate them into other apps like Google Translate.

“You can now say something like ‘winky face emoji’ to express yourself. Or, even ‘Colbert emoji’ to your friends when the occasion calls,” writes Daan Van Esch, Google’s technical program manager for speech who made the announcement on Google’s Search blog.
