Why isn't voice search just part of Chrome?
Maybe I don't understand how this works yet, but it still feels like there's an extra step to use voice search. I need to navigate to Google.com and then use voice search.
Shouldn't my Chrome browser - developed by Google - which searches Google by default when I type search terms into the browser bar, do this automatically?
I should be able to interact with my computer, by voice, via Google, even when I'm not on a Google website.
I know that means that my browser will be constantly listening to everything I say, waiting to hear for "OK Google", but that's fine with me.
That moves us significantly forward to that bold future of interacting with the computer via voice.
If I have to open up a tab, go to Google.com. Then I'm just going to keep on typing search terms.
Furthermore, I would force my engineers to interact with Google only by voice. Both to run search queries, to refine queries and to select results.
I'm sure they'll come up with a pretty efficient system if that's the only way they can interact with Google.http://chrome.blogspot.ca/2014/02/hands-free-google-voice-search-in-chrome.html
