Google will incorporate two icons in the search bar, one with a microphone, which activates the voice recognition, and one with a camera, which will put an image to find related results. To do a search on Google and you will not need a keyboard. The company announced a new feature that allows querying by speaking aloud in front of a computer.
In a virtual meeting with the media, the Google search team member, Amit Singhal, said the company based in Mountain View (California) has made these advances to “break the barriers between the user and knowledge”.
Google will incorporate two icons in the search bar, one with a microphone, which activates the voice recognition, and one with a camera, which will put an image to find related results.
The voice seeker, whose traffic from Android devices sixfold over the last year, will be based on the sound file that you have the company of these terminals.
Singhal saw this growth as a “success” is due to the accuracy and ubiquity of this option in the different functions of Android phones because “speech is as natural as humans do.”
On the other hand, image search, an adaptation of the application that has Google Goggles for its mobile operating system, runs through several options: copy the address of a picture on the internet, upload a snapshot from the computer or drag an icon from the equipment until the Google toolbar.
In addition, a software plug-in Chrome and Mozilla browsers allow users to click the right mouse button on a photo file and search results related to that image in Google.
Image search is presented to the company pages in 40 languages, while the voice is available in English from the Google.com website. However, Singhal announced its availability “in the future” for other languages.
