Chrome 27 reportedly has Google Now style voice search goodness too, according to Android Central. While the full contextual search isn't running like when it was demoed during the Google I/O keynote, basic voice search and response is up and running, says the Chrome team.
To try it out, go to settings in the Chrome browser and click the Help line entry option. When prompted, users should restart their browser session. Once back, they can head over to www.google.com and hit the microphone icon in the search box. Once they permit to listen to their voice, they can move to asking questions.
You can update to Chrome 27 by using the browser’s built-in silent updater, or download it directly from google.com/chrome.
