Google Inc(NASDAQ:GOOG) is frequently called the search giant, and for good reason. The company is always testing search features so that it can deliver most accurate and relevant outcomes, both through web platform and apps.
By now, we all are acquainted with the way Siri has made life seemingly easier. Google has announced recently that it has launched a new search app for iOS that entails updated and expanded voice features for more Siri-like experience.
The upgraded Google Search app will allow users to engage and share their queries in a natural manner while receiving responses that are pulled from massive resources of Google. For an instance, users can ask what a thing looks like and Google will come up with images that will automatically open, displaying the results for the specified question. Conversely, the app can be asked to play a specific movie trailer and the video will start on its own.
To start a voice search, users simply need to tap on the microphone icon and speak. If the response to a question is short enough, the app will speak the answer back. Google said that the new Google Search app that is designed for iPad and iPhone will help in finding information with improved voice search that answers any question with the comprehensive Google search outcomes that users know and love.
The system is powered by Knowledge Graph, a Google feature, which is designed to help the app in associating a search with its intended meaning. While the app proves to be sleek and more interactive than all its previous offerings, it is not really up to Siri’s level for iOS users. Siri is integrated into iOS, allowing users to manage Apple device with voice commands, such as finding new email composition. Google Search does not offer any such capability.
