Speak your mind, literally.


Google in their drive to make our lives easier has begun rolling out silent test that enables users to search by voice.

A blog called Search Engine Roundtable (how…fitting), reports that some users have spotted the familiar microphone icon on the search box on We checked it out ourselves, but as expected, it hasn’t been rolled out to this region, it seems.

We hope Google rolls out the feature soon, even in a beta stage (like their entire lineup of services). The lazy in us is just craving for something like this.
