The new Google voice search application was welcome by many users looking for a faster way to run searches on the top selling smartphone. The application was designed in America and reviewers in the UK have found that the software has an issue with Brits.

Specifically the British accent doesn't appear to be understood by the software. According to users, the application mistook the search word "iPhone" for completely erroneous words like "sex", "Einstein" and even "Kitchen Sink".

The application should work by finding local search results from words spoken. Say pizza and a list of local restaurants and their numbers should be displayed. Some British users say they have to use their best American accent to get it to work. Google says the product is for U.S. English but UK users are welcome to try it.
