Google Voice Search is the most used feature on my HTC One M8, and has been on my previous two phones as well. In fact, I use all of Google's voice command features so much, that I forget how to type on my phone's keyboard sometimes. During last years Google I/O conference the company announced that Voice Search was coming to Chrome, and followed through on that promise in February of this year for Chrome Beta users.

Today Google announced that it has released Google Voice Search for Chrome to everyone running the latest version of its Chrome browser. To use the new feature, users simply have to say OK Google when opening a new tab. Depending on the question, Google may respond audibly or return search results in the browser. At the moment, the feature only works for users with Chrome set to the English language, but it will be expanding to other languages in the future.
