Using the advanced google search tools, such as arimetic, dictionary and conversions. Also, a tad more detail on location based searching.
- "333 times 27"; see the screen image below, within a couple seconds you have the answer courtesy of the new google.app on the iPhone. This is just the beginning...
- "How many inches in a meter?"
- "How many kilograms in a pound?"
- "Define: obviate"
- Stock ticker: for example say "A A P L" to return Apple's stock quote.
- Sports scores.. speak the city and team name you are looking for.
- Time. Speak "Time in London" to get the actual time in the city you are looking for.
- Location based search: the google.app video used a couple of examples, here are several additional examples that I tested: doctor, dentist, hospital, chiropractor, funeral home, gas station, library, bar, starbucks, church... speaking any of these terms into the google.app provided a listing near my current location complete with one touch dialing and quck access to directions via the built-in map.app.
- There were a few words that did not seem to work with the location search, they were: barber, ice cream, hair stylist and pharmacy... when I spoke these words they turned up a standard google result without the "Local results near:" listing.
At this early stage of reviewing the new voice aware google app, it looks to have a firm placing on my home screen, it is extremely useful in the car where voice input is preferred over texting.
