From now on you can use a Google Now style voice search on your chrome browser. It is now available in the latest Chrome stable version for the desktop, and all you have to do is get the new update by taking the following steps:
- Launch your Chrome browser and open the settings.
- Click on Help and after a few seconds you will be prompted to relaunch Chrome.
- After you restart Chrome, just head to Google and click the microphone icon in the search box.
- You will have to give permission for Google to use your microphone (look for the bar on top), depending on your privacy settings.
- Then you speak.
Testing it out, we can tell you this isn’t as “fancy” as was shown off at Google I/O. More than likely this is just the beginning, and a more advanced form of the search will arrive a bit down the road.
