Think that voice assistance on your mobile like Siri or Google Now is an awesome feature and you wish you had it on your desktop? Now worries, Google just released an update for its Chrome Beta browser that does just that. If you’re running on the latest version of Chrome Beta, you will soon be able to use only your voice to perform a Google search simply by saying “OK Google”, no extensions required.
The update is currently available for English (U.S.) users on Windows, Mac and Linux, and will be rolled out over the next few days. How do you know if you have it? Just head on to Google.com now on your Chrome Beta and on the search bar, click on the mic icon and click on “Enable OK Google”. If you do not see it yet, well, just wait.
With “OK Google” enabled, the next time you want to perform a search and you are too busy to type, just say OK Google and you’re good to go. You can perform regular searches like “will I need an umbrella today” (the answer is no by the way), or even set a timer and create a reminder for Google Now.
