Google Tuesday launched a Thai-language version of its Voice Search product. For now it is available only on Android smartphones, but is scheduled to be available on iOS phones and on the Google Chrome browser later.
Pornthip Kongchun, head of marketing at Google Thailand, said Voice Search would give Thai users one more way to input inquiries besides typing a keyword. It will also help provide equal access to Google’s services for disabled and older people who are not familiar with typing on a mobile device.
“To use Thai Voice Search, users have to have the latest updated version of Google search app and have to set the voice language as ‘Thai’. That’s it,” she said.
