Google Launches Series of Voice Search Videos

Google wants to make sure you don’t forget that speech-to-text is one of the most useful features of its mobile operating system by releasing a series of videos which highlight practical and every day uses.  I’ll admit that I forget to use this almost every day, so a big thanks for the reminder Googs.  Now, what’s with the i*hone in half of the videos?  We grabbed 2 that feature a Nexus One below.

You can find the rest of the series at the Google Mobile Youtube channel.

    Since I started using Google voice, I haven't listened to a single voicemail on my phone… and only a handful on the computer.Google Voice is the future. Thanks alot google..

    I don't even swype my text messages any more. I just use voice. Its twice as fast.

    works perfect every time. I just say “call name of person” and it calls or gives me a list of names. Works 99% of the time. Droid X

    Every time I try to say send text like he did and then I speak the text it just opens a web search???? If I say call the bakery like he did it just opens a web search saying exactly what I said?? I dont get it..

    the “Set Alarm” voice command still doesn't work for me even after installing the posted Clock replacement app.

  • Patem10

    Its kind of fun to speak really fast and see what it comes up with. Some of them are pretty funny

    …did you just nickname Google to “Googs”? Seriously Kellex, hahaha

  • feztheforeigner

    WTF?!!?!?!!? Google is advertising most of these on an i*hone!?!?!?!? Why would they even release this to their competitor? Especially advertise it!!!

  • RLJSlick

    I never really use it but just tried it and got 9-10 correct, that's pretty good since I'm a mumbler.

    I must say that i've tried numerous times to use this wonderful feature on my dinc and sucks so much ass. I think Vlingo works alot better at understanding and reccognizing your words and sentences….just my thought!

    • jtwildman1

      I have to agree with you. It would be a great feature if I didn't have to say things 10 times to get it right. Still faster for me to just thumb punch. I really have tried to make it work, but it just doesn't.

      • jeesung

        works pretty well for me. i guess my voice fits the right profile.

        • jtwildman1

          Yeah I think my voice mumbling just doesn't work.. it understands about half of what I say lol

  • Chris Nimon

    I had forgotten but i've been using this while walking between classes and to write this. Its especially nice when non android phone users realize your talking to text. The look on their face is priceless.

  • cizzlen

    Love the strategy in the Foosball one haha.

  • Master Chief

    Kellex where are the DarkEdge icons u said about lastnight?

  • The350zWolf

    Those dorks don't have a clue how to play foosball—Hah!

  • Rizzidy

    What kind of no-life moron calls it “table soccer?”

    • jeesung

      probably what came up with the best response with their text to speech + search for the commercial ;-)

  • salsa

    Very cool but when is it going to be available over Bluetooth?! :/

  • jiggaman508

    Cheers to google for reminding us of this function
