Google has just released an update to the Google Mobile app for the iPhone which now includes voice recognition. No need to type in search terms anymore. All you’ll have to do is speak into the iPhone’s mouthpiece and tell the app what you want to find via Google and presto! A type-free search is done!
It’s now available for download at the App Store, but while the app can be installed on both the iPhone and iPod Touch, the voice-recognition support only works on the iPhone due to the lack of a mic on the iPod Touch. This new version of Google Mobile likewise comes with Search with a My Location feature which allows you to conduct local searches based on your present location. You must enable Location services on your iPhone first to take advantage of this feature.
Here's a short video demonstrating what the new features are in this latest iteration of Google Mobile.
Give it a try and tell us what you think? Personally, I'm not a huge fan of voice-recognition services, but if this is anywhere near what is being portrayed in the movies, then Google might have a winner here.
