Google to introduce “Searching by Voice” feature for iPhone

Not content on having what is quite possibly the best (or is it because it’s the only?) mobile web search application for the iPhone, Google is said to be working on a new feature that will be added to the Google Mobile app for iPhone as early as Friday.

According to a report from the New York Times, an updated version of the Google Mobile app will soon be released, and it will have voice recognition technology, enabling users to perform searches simply by speaking through the iPhone’s mouthpiece. Questions such as “Who moved my cheese?” and “Where’s your ice cream?” should then be treated as normal search terms on Google’s search engine.

And though a big shot like Google will be expected to outperform competitors in the category of voice-enabled mobile search, the NYT notes that Google’s system is still “far from perfect, and it can return queries that appear as gibberish.”

This, coupled with the new Google search results pages for iPhone will make for a very interesting experience. And the best part is, it’s all available for free.
