On Nov 18, Bret of Google Mobile team announced on his blog that the search giant just launched an updated version of the Google Mobile App that allows a user to do a Google web search using his voice.


"The Google Mobile App for iPhone and iPod touch devices is a free application that gives you easy access to Google Mobile products and lets you quickly search your device or the web for whatever info you need. You can get Google Search results just like on a computer by either entering a query and tapping 'Search' or tapping the microphone and speaking your query,"   Google states on its website.


The new voice search feature is currently only available in the U.S. English and for the iphone only, according to the announcement. Those who are interested are advised to visit the App store and check out Google Mobile App to download the voice-search App.


To use the new version of Google Mobile App, a user may just hold the phone to his ear, wait for the beep and say what he wants to search. The Google Mobile App will return search results formatted for his iphone, Bret says on his blog.


Google Mobile App is intended for mobile phone users to find the information they need through Google Search. The old fashion way is to type the query. But the new version allows a user to just talk and find the info he wants.


Another new feature is that Search with My Location allows finding business, weather, and movie info easy, as Google says on its website.


Other features of Google Mobile App include, cited in verbatim from Google website.


Local search suggestions on a map. See nearby business suggestions on Google Maps -- just tap the "near me" suggestions.


Instant access to search. Start a Google search with just one click.


Google Suggest. Get relevant search suggestions as you type, saving you keystrokes.


URL suggestions. Get to popular web sites quickly by tapping site web address suggestions.


Contact search. Quickly find contacts in your address book.


Search history. Get instant access to your previous searches.


Easy access to other Google products. Launch other Google products like Maps, Gmail and News from the Apps tab.
