An iOS application has been released by Google that brings a new search feature to compete with Apple’s Siri. Google calls it the “most advanced voice search”, on iOS. Google also provides some examples of how this new service can be utilized.
- “What does Yankee Stadium look like?” Google will show you hundreds of pictures instantly. – “Play me a trailer of the upcoming James Bond movie.” The trailer starts playing immediately right within Google Search. -”When does daylight savings time end?” The answer will appear above the search results, so you can set your clock without having to click on a link. -”Who’s in the cast of The Office?” See a complete cast list and find out who made you crack up last night.
This newer service feels alot faster than Siri, which recognizes words as they are said instead of all said at one time in the very end. It also works on devices that do not support Siri. A commenter from Hacker News says that the voice search works on his own iPhone 4.
Google Search for iOS is freely available on the App Store right now. [Direct Link]
