Official: Google Confirms “Conversational Search” Is Live In Chrome

Now, you can speak your queries to Google on the desktop in the way you can on mobile devices and get responses spoken back. It’s pretty impressive, but more impressive is the way this new “conversational search” takes what you’ve previously said and “remembers” that as you continue to search.

Google hasn’t done an official blog post about the new feature, which works for its Google Chrome browser, but it confirmed to us officially that it’s live, saying:

Conversational search has started rolling out in the latest version of Chrome. You can just click the mic in the search box, ask your question in a natural way, and get spoken answers. (You’ll need to update your Chrome browser to get the new functionality.)

We’ve covered the release in-depth, when it was spotted earlier today. It’s a significant change in search, so be sure to read the story on our Search Engine Land sister site to learn more:
