How to Use Speech-to-Text on Android (2023)


Do you want to use Speech-to-text on your Andriod? then this article is for you

Regardless of the manufacturer, this page covers how to use speech-to-text on all Android-powered devices (Google, Samsung, etc.).



  1. Launch any app you can type into, such as Gmail or Messages, then tap in a text field.

  2. Tap the Voice Input icon, which looks like a microphone.

    Note: The Gboard keyboard (the default for many Android phones), it’s in the upper right corner of the keyboard. If you’re using another keyboard, it might be elsewhere. In the popular Swype keyboard, for example, tap and hold the comma key to get the microphone.

  3. As you speak, you should see your speech converted automatically to text.

    Note: If you’re using some keyboards (like Swype or Grammarly), you may see a window with a microphone button while you’re dictating. Tap this to alternate between recording and pausing.

  4. When you’re done, tap the Voice Input icon again to stop recording. You can edit the text as normal if necessary, then send the message.

Note: Speech-to-text conversion is different from using your Android phone to read text aloud to you.

Start using your phone’s speech-to-text feature right away, or maybe you need to customize its behavior first. Here’s how:

The settings options may look slightly different depending on your version of Android, but the steps are basically the same.

  1. Go to Settings > System Language and input (or Settings > General Management Language and input on older devices).

  2. Tap the On-screen keyboard.

  3. Tap Google voice typing.

  4. If your preferred language isn’t already selected, tap Languages to choose it. If your preferred language isn’t already installed, tap Add a Language or All, then download the language of your choice.

    Note: On some phones, you must turn on Offline speech recognition to dictate when there’s no internet connection available.

  5. You can also control the way the speech-to-text engine responds to obscene language. If a potentially offensive word is dictated, by default that word will appear with asterisks. You can control this by toggling Block offensive words on or off.
