Since Android is Google’s mobile platform, it’s only natural for the big G to continuously add new features to it.
And the latest one comes to help T-Mobile G1 users to easily and quickly search stuff on Google, by using voice commands. That’s right, you won’t have to type your queries anymore if you don’t feel like it.
The voice search feature is not yet available, but it will be, after the next Android update comes (which should happen starting this week).
Using the new feature is simple, since it will be integrated both in Android’s home screen and in its Web browser. Just push the microphone button next to the box search and, after the “speak now” prompt is heard, you can say the terms you want to search for.
Initially, voice search on Android will only be available for G1 users in the US.
