Google Chrome is the most voice-enabled browser in the free world, as the company propelling it continues to weave voice throughout its core applications via Chrome. The search engine Aug. 25 switched on the ability to let users speak search queries into their computer microphone to look for places and get directions for Google Maps. The move comes two months after Google launched Google Voice Search for the desktop via Chrome, and works the same way as that tool. That’s because it leverages the exact same speech recognition and application model used for the Google Voice Search for Android smartphones and tablets. Users simply click the microphone icon in Google Maps, speak their location or direction queries and wait for the results.
