Google voice searches can now be corrected after a failed attempt

Google Search
Searching Google by voice has been hit and miss for a lot of people and with voice search now the focal point on Android Wear it makes sense that there are steps in place to improve it.

According to 9to5Google, if you attempt a search such as ‘find me the nearest bars’, Google could get anything wrong in that search, but you could end up with ‘find me the nearest cars’. A simple voice command of ‘No, I said bars’ will resubmit the search with the one word changed. This looks to be an extension of their conversational search that Google introduced last year, with the change able to be made to an existing search.

While, the option to repeat a failed voice search with a change, only works on Google Search on Android (Ok, and iOS) and not Android Wear, it’s only a matter of time right?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

No, I said are you out of your vulcan mind. Awesome pickup Daniel – this has to be a fix for the most infuriating problems with Android voice commands. Many thanks – will be hitting my mobile hard next time in the car (with handsfree)
