It is always convenient and simple to dictate as compared to pulling up app and typing. This is the reason Google is updating its Gboard for android apps to voice support for international languages. Google has released voice recognition support for Urdu along with thirty other international languages.

The voice feature is easily approachable via Gboard. This means that now on Google you can make search by speaking up in your mother tongue.  Earlier, Google voice recognition was capable of recognizing selective languages but after the addition of thirty more languages, now Gboard can detect 119 languages in total. The new update contains the languages from Asia and Africa.

However, Google already has a feature to convert Roman Urdu text to Urdu Script.

How to get the feature?

                You can simply access to feature by following these simple steps:

  1. Make sure that you have installed Gboard and is set up as your default keyboard.
  2. While typing message through Gboard, tap and hold on the space bar and select the option ‘Google Voice Typing’
  3. Then go to ‘Settings’ and select Urdu as your primary language.
  4. Just after doing these steps, speak up and Gboard will convert your voice to Urdu script text.

It is worth mentioning here that now you can add emoji via voice recognition. For if you will say ‘smile emoji’ it will appear at your text bar.
