Google rolls out new voice, search updates

The new search button is embedded on the Google text box.

After a simple Google search today while looking up the latest posts on the summer solstice, I came across this small new button embedded in the Google search bar. Most commonly found on smartphones, Google’s search engine website now comes equipped with a voice search feature. Just click the button and your computer will begin to capture what you say into the microphone and then instantly search your spoken words.

This is a simple, yet great feature that enhances the online search process. Since this has been a norm for some time for smartphone capabilities, it seems that we should have seen this some time ago, but either way, it’s great that Google has put this addition in place.

Many site updates are criticized with critics saying, “why change something that is already great?” But for this type of addition, I don’t see that similar criticism happening. It seems that Google has taken advantage of the summer solstice celebration by rolling out this discrete, yet powerful new feature.

Here’s a nice review of the update on pcmag.com: Google rolling out new voice, search updates

    Gross is kinda vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines to
    get people interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
