Google Voice Search has actually been around since 2008. Yet, it’s largely stayed under the radar. But today, one in every four searches from an Android phone in the U.S. is done by voice.
And that’s because, on a smartphone, you can talk a lot faster than you can type. Google uses voice recognition tools so you can utilize Google search the same way you would with a traditional keyboard input.
Many users also find Google Voice Search easier because knowing the correct spelling of certain difficult words is no longer an issue. Just say it. And Google will find it. The question is, is Google Voice Search Instant just around the corner as well?
