You Can Now Talk to Google on Chrome

Posted by at 1:45 pm on November 27, 2013


Google has released an extension for its Chrome browser called “Google Voice Search Hotword” that will let you search the Internet via speech from Google’s site. By saying “OK Google,” and then your search term or phrase, the site will do a search for you. If you ask a specific question, such as converting measurements, Google’s voice assistant will respond.

The demo video shows a series of searches based on cooking: “OK Google, compare olive oil and butter,” “OK Google, what is 5 tablespoons in ounces,” and “OK Google, remind me to buy olive oil on Sunday afternoon.” That last command creates a reminder in Google Now, the company’s virtual assistant program for Android and iOS devices.
