Google added the voice search function to its iPhone application. I tried it, it's really cool - it automatically enters the hearing mode once you hold your phone close to your ear (I heard Google acquired this technology from a startup in Europe), but it couldn't get my words right on more than 50% of cases. I guess that's because I am not a native speaker. Any way, if you are willing to give it a try, here is how.


  1. Download it from Apple store. Search "Google" to find it. It's a free application.
  2. Tap the "G" icon to open it up.
  3. Hold your iPhone close to your ear.
  4. After you hear a beep, speak the words or sentence that you want to search.
  5. Look at your screen. It will show the progress of voice recognition. Once it's done, the words will be placed in the search box, and start searching.


If you want to change settings, tap the "Settings" at the bottom. You can turn the voice search on and off. You can also choose what you want it to search in the "Searchable" option. For example, do you want it to search your contact as well.
