Google updated it’s search to include voice searching. While this was available on iOS and Android devices for some time, it is now available on the desktop and allows you to speak naturally to your computer and get answers spoken back to you.
Voice Search taps into Google’s “Knowledge Engine,” a system that acts like Apple’s Siri virtual assistant, and returns a list of results.
To give this a try you will a microphone for your computer and Google’s web browser Chrome and when you go to google.com you will see a microphone icon in the search bar. Click the microphone icon and ask away.
Here’s a couple of fun ones to try:
1) What’s the weather like in Dublin, CA?
2) What is the circumference of the Earth?
3) Who is Daniel Craig?
