Google launches voice search for iPhone users

The good news is that this application is actually free. Users of the iPhone App can speak into the iPhone’s microphone and pose their questions. For example, you can a question like, “Where is the closest Apple store?” This info is then relayed into the iPhone and ends up being translated by Google’ servers. Neat stuff.

Handsfree applications have been welcomed by consumers simply to get things done faster while you multitask. Using voice for search sounds like a great idea. Hats off to Google for coming up with it and also finally adding Gmail Voice and Video Chats.

I’ll have to wait and see when Google can apply a similar function for users of laptops and notebooks as well. That would even more exciting and futuristic than speaking into an iPhone.

    People don’t do research on an iphone. They do it on their desktop or notebook or UMPC. I found some voice recognition software named Tazti speech recognition that actually is a free download and performs voice searches of Google, Yahoo, MSN, Wikipedia, Amazon, eBay and many other websites. It also lets me log into and navigate Facebook and Myspace by talking to my PC. tazti also lets me control my iTunes music player bu talking to my PC. It really works well.
