Google has released an annoucement stating that they will shortly be releasing a brand new, exciting very of their Google Search app. This app for iPads, iPhone and iPod Touch is promising Siri-like capabilities.
The app will allow users to speak to the app and it will respond with voice-based answers. If you ask the new Google Search app for the location of service stations for car repair, as you see in the video below, it will tell you how many it finds in your area, mirroring the Google voice capabilities that were previously available only to Android users.
According to The Verge, who actually witnessed the new Google Search engine app first-hand, it has a very clean and intuitive interface with all of Google’s now famous uncluttered environment. The app is able to use contextual-GPS based and the information you are searching for to formulate answers, however it display simple search engine results in response to your questions. It will, however respond to specific commands like opening up a particular webpage or video.
Once Google releases the new update it will, similarly to both Siri and Google Now, be able to identify you as it’s user. If you ask the new updated app a personal question it is said that it will give you a personal answer specific to you or your plans, schedule or calendar. It should be within the Apple App store “within the next couple of days,” Google says.
We can look for the new, upgraded Google Search app to be available in the Apple App store “within the next couple of days,” Google says. You will find our app description below also updated as that happens. We invite you to stop back to get your copy or watch our Facebook page for the announcement and link to the upgraded app. We only hope that Apple, who has the app in their testing queue already for several days, will allow the app to pass through with its Siri-like voice and interface.
I am really looking forward to getting MY hands on the new, upgraded Google Search soon!
p.s. so do you think it’ll make it out of testing and into the Apple App Store in the same timing as “ordinary” apps?
