By default, US English is set as the default voice search language in Google Maps. But what if you want to set your mother tongue as the default language for voice search as you don’t find English convenient enough?
Luckily, you can change default voice search language in Google Maps on your iPhone. The app supports a number of languages like English, Arabic, Catalan, Chinese (Hong Kong), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian Bokmål, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Traditional Chinese, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese etc. Let me show you how it works!
