Google releases a new advertisement for its voice search capabilities


It’s the familiar prompt for many, and Google wants even more to become familiar with its voice search and the power that it provides. Perhaps in response to the enhanced natural language processing power of Hound, and perhaps just in a push to feed the gaping maw of Google’s knowledge graph, Google has released a new TV commercial for its voice search function which shows off some of the fairly incredible things it can do:

Chances are you’ve seen this on TV already; it’s been across the commercial networks and I’m sure I’ve spotted it on a couple of Foxtel channels as well. Regardless, it’s a light fluff piece, and if you were ever wondering just what Google’s voice search could uncover for you, you need wonder no more.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
