New Google Chrome Extension Allows You To Search Hands Free

Save time with the new feature in Google Chrome which allows users to search the popular search engine with your voice instead of typing.

The extension for users who browse the web wit Chrome is called Google Voice Search Hotword. Once the extension is downloaded the user has to say “Ok Google” on for hands free searching. The feature can only be used with computers with microphones.

After saying “Ok Google” you just need to ask a questions and Google will display the results. To avoid the draining of battery life the feature is set to stop listening after being inactive for five minutes.

Hands free Google search were introduced on Android phones earlier this year. Android devices running the latest 4.4 KitKat version can initiate the same search feature from the home screen by saying “Ok Google”.
