To choose the Indian accent, the users have to go to the settings in Google Search app, then select Voice>Language> choose English > English (India).

Voice search requires Android 2.3+ and is also available in iOS in the Google Search app.
"Voice has always been the most natural way to interact with a phone, as speaking is typically faster and easier than typing. Google hopes to make Search accessible to an even larger group of Indian users, to help them find the information they need at just the right moment," Google said in a statement.

Footballer Baichung Bhutia, singer and model Shibani Dandekar and chef Kunal Kapur were present during the event.
