Google Search For iOS Gets iPhone 5 Support And Improved Siri-Like Voice Search
Google has pushed out a new update for the Google Search iOS app, adding iPhone 5 support, improved Voice search and more. The Voice search functionality that Google’s well known for, is now available in the new Search app and it is amazing.
Google Search for iOS has improved Voice search capabilities just like you have on Android devices running Jelly Bean. With Voice search, you can easily look for a term, find answers for questions, know the weather, search for images, find locations and much more. Check out a demo video below.
Of course, it is not as good as the Android version, but it’s something and it recognizes voice faster and more accurately than Siri does most of the time. Apart from that, the app also gets support for iPhone 5′s taller 4-inch display.
Fast and accurate voice recognition technology enables Google to understand exactly what you’re saying. Getting an answer is as simple as tapping on the microphone icon and asking a question like, “Is United Airlines flight 318 on time?” Your words appear as you speak, you get your answer immediately and—if it’s short and quick, like the status and departure time of your flight—Google tells you the answer aloud.
If you have Google Search installed on your iOS device, then you must try out the new Voice search. Google Search for iOS is available for free in the App Store.
