Siri learns seven new languages, plus English with new accents

The latest update for iOS 8 will reportedly be diversifying more than its emojis.

According to reports, Siri will soon be able to understand seven additional languages with the release of the iOS 8.3 beta 2. The voice assistant feature will add Russian, Danish, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish, Thai, and Turkish to its multi-lingual vocabulary, which is expected to be released later this year.

The most interesting language update will allow Siri to interpret English with an Indian accent. As India Today reports, Indian speakers were “forced to fake an American accent to get Siri to understand their voice commands.” While watching others attempt to fake an accent can be amusing, this is sure to come as a relief in one of the largest growing markets in the world.

The language (and accent) updates hint at Apple’s push to expand further into emerging markets like BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China). Siri understanding Portuguese could take Apple far in Brazil. And with booming sales in Asia, thanks to larger iPhone models, the tech giant obviously has its sites on markets outside of China, Japan, and South Korea by including Thai in the update.

Siri has become one of the iPhone’s defining features, but for many people, it’s not always the most useful. While some of this is due to the limitations of voice recognition, the oddity of using voice to command a device is also partly to blame.
