Google Mobile Audio Search


Google isn’t foolish enough to think that Android is the end-all, be-all of the mobile world. In fact, fostering growth among many platforms has been a key initiative of the Big G and they continue to release new and innovative apps on platforms like iPhone and BlackBerry OS BEFORE it comes out for Android.

One example is with Google Mobile Audio Search. While how great this app is will be defined by how well the speech-to-search function actually works, the potential results seem pretty incredible:

My favorite part? The application makes use of the phone’s accelerometer to know when you’re holding the phone to your head and ready to speak… and then when you take your phone away from your head it knows you’re done speaking. Like the Guiness guys say…. BRRILLLIAANNT!

If you ask me, this is a huge step forward in mobile search functionality where not only are the confines of size and travel acknowledged but embraced. I believe this App will hit the iPhone first and we’ll be eagerly awaiting it on the G1. Keep up the great work Googlers.

I'm an Android and Tech lover, but first and foremost I consider myself a creative thinker and entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for ideas of all sizes. I'm a sports lover who cheers for the Orange (College), Ravens (NFL), (Orioles), and Yankees (long story). I live in Baltimore and wear it on my sleeve, with an Under Armour logo. I also love traveling... where do you want to go?

  1. Why are they not promoting their own platform…. while sell the iPhone when they have their own phone?
    I think it is the dumbest move ever.

  2. I guess releasing first on other platforms will help them avoid anti-trust lawsuits. ;)

    For Google its not just about Android. Its about the overall picture of search and advertising. Unlike MS they aren’t going to spite their moneymaking partners and customers just to push their product. No matter what once Android is on a few handsets it will have a bigger installed based than the single device IPhone. I don’t believe they have too much to worry about.

    I do with though that they would integrate ALL of their apps into Android.

  4. Phil,
    As much as I agree with you, Google has a lot to gain by promoting G1. The TV commercials is done by Google for the G1 not tmobile. The back of the phone is branded Google. So where will they build their coolest apps and promote it. On the iphone? It just doesn’t make financial sense. No matter how you slice it. Steve jobs will never make a mistake like that. I own an iphone as well as a G1.

  5. Any news of when this is coming to Android?

  6. anti trust …..true

  7. It is important for Google to continue to produce excellent apps for multiple platforms. Call it a play from Apples book but the “Halo Effect” is something Google will do well to leverage. Much like Apple is able to flip many PC users to Macs via the iPod/iPhones “Halo Effect”, Google will be able to flip iPhone users to Android powered handsets.

  8. don’t know about the future but for now the app is not available for the G1…so how are they going to flip users when they don’t develop their apps for their platform?

  9. What if Google has a plan though? I mean I notice google has a lot of software for the iPhone Google earth, google mobile app, google search in Mobilesafari and google maps with street view just to name a few but if they have something bigger in store for the Android OS??
