Because talking good isn't something everyone does

Like the idea of voice search, but frustrated when your device doesn't understand you? Google's Voice Search feature has gotten an update that allows the app to "learn" your voice patterns and inflections, allowing for greater accuracy he more you use the app.

The program has been around for a couple of years, but has had a difficult time due to the fact that no two people talk the same. Google is confident their latest update will change this, stating that "although subtle, accuracy improvements begin fairly quickly and will build over time." How much time is required, we're not sure. The new update does require Android 2.2 to use, which leaves quite a few users still in the dark.
