Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is not the type of company that sits back, hoping for the best but never really knowing what the future is going to bring. Instead, the search engine giant is always on the move. It is always looking for changes that can make life easier on its users.
Recently, Google announced a Chrome for Android update, now available on Google Play, that is sure to change the way that people search the internet. How cool is that?
If you want to learn more about all the updates, you don’t have to look any further than the Google Chrome blog. The post – Searching on the go, made even simpler – explains all the details of the update.
Here is what it had to say about mobile browsing:
“To make browsing the mobile web even easier, web pages also display in fullscreen on phones. As you scroll, the top toolbar disappears so you can immerse yourself in the web page content. When you scroll up, the toolbar returns so you can get on to the next thing.”
While all of this is exciting, there is something else that you need to know about Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Chrome and the direction in which it is headed: Chrome for iPhone and iPad, with voice search, is coming soon.
“Over the coming days, we’re rolling out an update for iPhone and iPad as well. You can now speak your searches into the omnibox. Touch the microphone, say your search query aloud and see your results (in some cases spoken back to you), all without typing a single letter.”
While nobody knows for sure if voice activated search is the wave of the future, it is safe to say that Google sees a place for it. And interestingly enough, it is going to roll the feature out on the iPad and iPhone.
With updates such as these, it will be interesting to see if Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Chrome is able to grab some of the market share in the web browser market.
If nothing else, this goes a long way in showing that Google has big things in store for Chrome in the near future. These sorts of updates are a big deal for the company as well as the millions of people who rely on Chrome for everyday internet use.
