Google has announced that its Search app on Android devices can now handle a number of different spoken languages at once, in an effort to help people who speak more than one language.

Google has just added this feature to the app, which should be rolling out now on the Google Play Store. In a blog post, the company said that once the update is downloaded, users can open Google Settings from their device's apps menu, tap Search & Now, then Voice, then Languages, and finally select the languages they want in order to enable the feature.

Google says:

"Google will automatically detect which language you're using. (For now, you need to stick to one language per sentence though.) You can select up to five languages total—enough to satisfy all but the most advanced polyglots. Whether you get a spoken response from Google depends on the language you use and your query (and you'll see more languages and features added over time)."

What do you think of this new feature and will you be using it if you speak more than one language on a regular basis?
