Google's Automatic Voice Search debut on Chrome

Posted by Unknown | November 27, 2013 |

Google has made available a Chrome extension, Google Voice Search Hotword, that will enable users on desktop to initiate a search without typing, just by speaking. The browser extension allow users to do voice search on Google.com by the command, "Ok Google", plus the search term.

The tool which is still in beta can be downloaded from the Chrome Web Store and it's available both on desktop and laptops.

Chrome's active tab is required to be on Google.com for the feature to work, however, users can also conduct a new voice search directly from the search page, and it's ready when the microphone icon becomes bold.

Google has been readying some amazing voice features since the company's I/O conference in May, and working to improve the search algorithm especially on voice related commands along its semantic search technology.
