What's This?

The only problem with voice recognition systems is their connection with the internet. As soon as you disconnect your internet, the commands do not work, not even the simple ones. Google Voice Recognition has come up with a solution for this. The app will now work without internet as well.


The Google Voice Recognition offline service is said to be 7 times faster than the current, online service. The app’s offline service is also said to be more accurate than the internet-based service. Since it’s still in its initial stage, the Android app does not support advanced features. If you want access to all of the features that Google Voice Recognition offers, you will require an internet connection. Giving out more information about Google Voice Recognition offline service, 9to5 Google wrote, “Using various machine learning techniques, Google has created a 20.3MB system that is 7x faster than a system connected to the Internet and only has a 13.5% word error rate. It was implemented and tested on a two year old Nexus 5 with a quad-core 2.26GHz processor and 2GB RAM.” According to the same report, this Android app was trained by exposing it to “3 million anonymous voice samples (approximately 2,000 hours) from Google search.”

Even if Google Voice Recognition is limited right now, we at least, know that the company is working on taking ot offline. We are sure that a full-fledged app that supports advanced features will be made available soon. Can we expect an improved Google Voice Recognition offline service on the upcoming Nexus phone? All of the companies are working on improving their already existing features for their next flaship phones. Google’s Nexus looks like no exception. As we know, last year Android Marshmallow was also introduced on Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. This year, along with Android N, Google may bring some new and exciting features as well.
