And if being able to recognize thick accents over a long distance wasn’t impressive enough, another Google team went to the Great Barrier Reef there to test Google Voice Search underwater. Granted they didn’t bring the phone underwater, but with the setup they used to transmit voice from underwater to the phone that was on a ship, it might as well have been. And despite the fuzzy transmission, Google Voice Search managed to recognize what they were searching for, which is pretty remarkable. Perhaps next time they can use a waterproof phone instead?
Check out the videos after the break. Have you performed any remarkable searches using Google Voice Search lately?
