‘OK Google’ voice activation hits Google Chrome browser Beta
Google Voice Search has been rolled out to the Google Chrome desktop browser over some time and users are now able to use their voice to conduct search commands right within their browser. Google have taken this to the next level in their latest Beta of Google Chrome with the popular “Ok Google” voice command which can be used to activate the recognition.
Google Chrome is now listening for your command, just like with the recently launched Google Now Launcher. Simply say “Ok Google” and the voice search gets activated.
According to the Google Chrome Blog the feature “will be rolled out to English (U.S.) users on Windows, Mac and Linux over the next few days, with support for additional languages and Chrome OS coming soon.”
Just download the latest Google Chrome Beta and the voice activation is enabled by default. Pick up the latest Beta for Chrome here.
