iOS Google Search voice search

Good news today for iOS folk that prefer to let their voice do their web searching, as Google has announced that it's bringing improved voice search to its iOS app. Google explains that the new voice search will take advantage of things like its understanding of language and Knowledge Graph in order to better interpret questions in natural language and, in some cases, respond with full sentences. The app sounds and looks a bit like what Google introduced with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and indeed, Google says that Android users have been enjoying this type of voice search in recent weeks. The revamped Search app will be available to iPhones and iPads on iOS 4.2 or higher, and Google told The Verge that the update should arrive in the App Store "within the next couple of days."

While this update won't exactly be the same as getting Google Now, which the company says is all about presenting cards with information about your surroundings, the new voice search feature should still make for a nice addition to the iOS Google Search app. Of course, I'm sure many iOS users will be fine sticking with Siri, but this updated app could be worth checking out for folks that want to try something new or just hate the linen background that's present while using Siri. Until the update actually hits the App Store, you can find a video demonstration of it below.
