Google Search update also enables voice controls for UK English

No more changing of your system language required

Today's Google Search update may have a few more tricks up its sleeve than we know, but we have found that it enables voice actions for those using U.K. English on their device. Folks outside of the U.S. previously had to set the app's language to U.S. English in order to get Google Now to respond to voice commends, but now our friends across the pond can get in on the action.

Better yet, you even have a response voice of a U.K. English speaker, which completes the entire loop. This is one update you'll want to grab if you've been clamoring for voice actions in the U.K. and are tired of changing to U.S. English just to make it happen.
