Being an Australian, one of the things that I’ve had to learn to live with is Google butchering the names of Australian cities – I mean seriously, what’s not to get when saying Mullumbimby or Maroochydore? Fortunately, Google has heard the Aussie cries of pain (by the way, “Aussie” is pronounced “Ozzie”), and has just updated the Google app with an Australian accent, one which can actually pronounce Australian city names. That might not sound like a huge deal for the rest of the world, but it’s nice to know that Google is thinking of our small, island nation.
What do you think about the update to the Google app to add an Australian accent? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
