Google has just released a new version of the Google Search App for iOS, updating it to version 4.0.0. The major change in this update is that Google Search has just got more interactive. Once you start the voice search with a simple ‘Ok, Google’, and ask something like ‘What’s the weather like today?’, you can actually follow up with a query like ‘what about tomorrow?’, and Google Search will understand that you are once again asking about the weather, without you having to repeat yourself.
In the rest of the changelog, you find “cricket” under the sports cards category, faster loading of information, as well as redesigned image results.
Here is the complete changelog from the application’s iTunes page:
With today’s update, you can ask questions with your voice & get updates on topics you care about.
Have a smarter conversation with Google:
• Tap the microphone or say “Ok Google” to start
• Ask questions such as “What’s the weather like?”
• Then follow up with “How about this weekend?”
