Remember we mentioned that Google Chrome 11 brings support for voice input that works with translate.google.com? Well it looks like Google has unveiled more plans to make use of voice input on the web. Google has been reportedly testing out the voice input feature for their regular search engine as well.
The Google Voice Search feature will perform similarly to how the feature currently works on Android phones – users hit a button, speak, and Google will search the web to bring you results. Right now the feature seems to be in a limited testing period, with the feature not available to everyone. Expect and official announcement and unveiling from the search engine giant in the near future, if all testing goes as planned.
Can you see the benefits of having Voice Search while sitting in front of your computer? It sure makes sense on a mobile device, but on a computer where you have a full-sized keyboard to work with – not really. But nobody’s ever complained about having too many options right?
