chrome-os-okGoogle has made Chrome OS all the more useful in your everyday life by allowing you to search for stuff by voice whenever you happen to have a blank or Google search tab open. I suppose this works great when you are busy tucking in to some Buffalo wings, where the only real way of eating it would be using your fingers. Sure, it might be a whole lot messier than using utensils, but there is just something about eating with your fingers that help maximize the flavors, don’t you think so? Now, you can launch searches from the Chrome OS operating system via the “OK Google” command.

This is also not going to be the last update for Chrome OS, far from it, but as for now, the recently released Chrome OS version 35 would deliver “hotwording” support to the masses via new tabs and Google search pages. This would also include pages that are already showing off search results.

Before you can take advantage of this particular feature, however, you would need to first enable OK Google voice searching via a checkbox in the privacy section of Chrome OS’s advanced settings. Do take note that if you are not using US English, this feature will not be available for you.
