You’ve been able to search Google via voice on your smartphone for a while – now Google is bringing voice recognition to your desktop search as well.
You have to use the latest version of Chrome to take advantage of this feature. It will take a number of days for Google to roll this out to everyone, so it may be a while before you start seeing the little microphone in your Google search box. When you do see the microphone, just click on it and speak your search request.
Below is a short video from Google that not only shows voice recognition in action, but may also provide some search tips that you haven’t had a chance to use yet, like searching for flights.
