[searchengineland] Google’s “Conversational Search” Goes Live On Chrome

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
conversational search added to google
Quote:
If you have the latest version of Chrome, you can click on the microphone in the search box to speak your search.

That’s not new. Google rolled that functionality out almost two years ago. The difference is that “search by voice” now speaks back to you, similar to how the Google Search App works for the iPhone or Android. Once you speak, you’ll see your words appear:



Then you’ll get your results:


Seems interesting, the article goes in to more detail where the search remembers previous questions asked and is able to follow up with related questions and also uses location info for questions like "how's the weather". It's not perfect, but it's a cool start.

What are you doing with your hands that you can't just type it?


Maybe it'd be different if I poked at the keys like a chicken typer.

This would be neat if eventually you could use it like the omnibar or without needing to go to a special tab. Like if I'm here on OCN, just randomly say "Hey Google (to activate its voice recognition and differentiate form normal speaking), how's the weather?" it pops open a new new tab automatically.
