Google Now Switches Languages for Us

SMS Text

As you may know, I’m Ukrainian – which means when I do searches on the internet, I use two languages: English (mostly) and Russian. This also means I’m constantly shifting back and forth between the two languages. All this switching inevitably leads to many instances where I’ve forgotten to swap to the intended language before typing the search term and clicking “Enter.”

If you have at least two languages supported by your keyboard, I’m sure you’re all too familiar with this situation.

Today, when I caught myself again typing in the wrong language, I discovered that Google couldn’t be fooled. It understood what I meant:

Google to switch languages

I have absolutely no data to support my theory as to how new the feature is, but I don’t think I have ever noticed anything like it before.

What about you? Have you noticed Google becoming multilingual?

    Good point.
    If you often switch between many languages, handier use special switchers like “Punto switcher”(only Russian) or “Keyboard Ninja”( other Europe Languages) .
    Using this stuff only one problem left for me – with Asians layouts( Japanese, Chinese etc.)

    I haven’t experienced such difficulties to manage two languages, but i find it funny to know that Google still understands multiple language “internally”. LOL!

    As Am I …I have noticed this feature as well on several occasions while typing Russian. Not sure when it came around to be though.
