Google Mobile App for iPhone, now with Voice Search


>>MIKE LEBEAU: Hi, my name’s Mike LeBeau.
I’m going to tell you about Google Mobile App for iPhone and show you what this free,
downloadable application can do. “Pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset.” [pause] Cool, right?
Google search results just by talking into your phone.
After you start Google Mobile App, just lift the iPhone to your ear, wait for the beep
and speak. How big is a giant squid?
Google Mobile App uses the phone’s motion to know when to start recording.
And when you’re done speaking, it automatically does a Google search.
See? No buttons, no typing.
And here’s another cool feature: Search results based on your location.
Say that I’m in San Francisco and I want to see a movie.
I can just say, “Movie show times,” and Google Mobile App gives me local search results for
San Francisco. Now, say I’m in New York City.
If I do the same search– “Movie show times”– then I’ll get search results for New York.
Another way to start a voice search is simply by tapping the microphone button.
“25 degrees Celsius in Fahrenheit.” 77 degrees.
Now if for some reason you don’t want to say your search, you can also type it.
Google Mobile App offers suggestions as you type, to make it easier and faster.
It suggests website shortcuts, Wikipedia articles, past searches, suggested search terms and
contacts. So the bottom line here is: Faster web search
with fewer key strokes. One more thing.
Google Mobile App also has an “Apps” tab that lets you easily launch other Google products,
like Gmail and Google News. So that’s the overview of Google Mobile App.
If you want to give it a try, go to the app store on your iPhone and search for Google
Mobile App.
