The highly anticipated update to the Google Mobile app for iPhone is now available, albeit only for iPhone users for now. As promised, users will now be able to do searches on Google through voice, or just by speaking into the iPhone’s mouthpiece.
While the voice-enabled Google Mobile app for iPhone may have been delayed in its release, Google promises it will be a worthwhile download. To perform searches now, all users will have to do is run the Google Mobile app, speak into the iPhone’s mouthpiece, and wait for the iPhone-optimized Google search pages to load with the search results. It’s that easy.
Another interesting thing of the Google Mobile app for iPhone is the “Search with my location” feature, which automatically tracks down a user’s whereabouts in order to serve local search results, which come in quite handy for some particular search terms (such as “movie showtimes,” “nearby hospitals,” et cetera).
The voice-enabled Google Mobile app for iPhone can be downloaded from the app store. A video demo of the app is embedded below:
