Google Voice Search comes to iOS devices

Google Voice Search is now available for iOS devices in the form of a dedicated app.

The refined service was introduced to Android devices with the 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, and has now been optimised for the latest iPhone and iPad models.

Google Voice Search responds to spoken queries with audio and written responses, drawing results from Google’s proprietary Knowledge Graph.

“When you have a question, finding the answer should be effortless – wherever you are and whatever device you’re using,” said Google in a statement.

“The new Google Search app for iPhone and iPad helps you to do just that with enhanced voice search that answers any question with the comprehensive Google search results you know and love.”

The service brings competition to Apple’s Siri personal assistant, but does not offer the same array of system-wide services as its competitor.

The new Google Search apps is available to download now for Apple devices running iOS 4.3 or higher. Watch a video introducing the service below:
