Google’s revamped voice search coming to iOS, tackles Siri on her home turf
Google has been offering the ability to search the web with your voice using its iOS app for some time. But, it always just spit out a pile of links. While the next version won’t be getting quite as creepy as Google Now, it’ll be bringing with it the vocalized responses that debuted as part of Jelly Bean’s revamped search offerings. The UI is also getting an overhaul to bring it in line with Now and Mountain View’s recent aesthetic tendencies towards sharp lines and limited color schemes. Obviously, the new app also taps the Knowledge Graph, allowing you to make natural language queries like, “what’s the weather like in San Francisco,” and get a detailed vocalized response. According to Google the update should be hitting the App Store in “the next few days,” but don’t expect it to keep tabs on your favorite sports team for you.
