Google TV demo video accidentally released, unveils plans for future updates

by: Joe HindyOctober 13, 2012
Google TV recently got an update that allowed for Google Play Store access. Google does not plan on stopping there. A video was leaked, and subsequently taken down, that shows the next wave of Google TV features. These include dual screen integration and voice search optimized for Google TV. The video being taken down likely means that these updates aren't ready for release yet, but that shouldn't stop Google enthusiasts from being excited.

Google Now fully ported to Ice Cream Sandwich, all features including Voice Search reported as working

by: AdrianAugust 6, 2012

Google Now has been the headline of Jelly Bean’s update changelog since day one, but unfortunately, the service has only been available to JB users until now. We’ve talked on a number of occasions about Google Now’s exquisite interface, its ease of use, functionality, and its splendid Voice Search function, which has already kicked Siri’s you know what more than once. But the truth is very few of us have had the chance to test the “mobile personalized search application” so far.

Fortunately, thanks to the collective efforts of some brilliant XDA developers, we can finally install Google Now on ICS-powered devices and enjoy the full functionality of the service, [...]

Jelly Bean’s Voice Search flexes its muscles and accurately answers 20 new questions (video)

by: AdrianJuly 5, 2012

The new Voice Search function in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean doesn’t cease to amaze us, although technically very few of us have actually had the chance to try it out. However, demo videos are piling up over on YouTube, and they all draw the same conclusion – Voice Search is awesome!

After compiling what probably was and still is the most comprehensive (and impressive) demonstration video of Voice Search a couple of days ago, Jean-Louis Nguyen (aka JLishere) has gone up and uploaded a follow-up clip with 20 fresh new searches.

Unsurprisingly, Voice Search once again does a stupendous job in accurately answering to different questions from [...]

Jelly Bean’s Voice Search rocks with answers to 40+ basic, but also outrageous questions (video)

by: AdrianJuly 3, 2012

Although it hasn’t been the only important update or improvement it has brought to the table, Jelly Bean’s voice search has been the highlight of so many articles and discussions this past week that I’m sure you’re starting to get a bit tired.

And while I know that you’ve already seen a fistful of video clips comparing the new voice search in Android to Apple’s Siri, or simply showing off what the new feature can do, you shouldn’t miss the video at the end of this post for the world.

In this particular clip, Jean-Louis Nguyen, a Montreal-based technology geek (I hope he doesn’t mind me calling him that) takes the voice search on the Galaxy Nexus for a pretty [...]

How To: Setup, Configure, and use Google Now

by: Derek RossJuly 2, 2012

What is Google Now?

There’s some confusion out there in the Android world. Google Now is not Android’s “Siri killer”, that’s Voice Search (which you can get to and use from within Google Now). Google Now is much, much more than an application that listens to queries and spits out answers. I’m not even sure we can call Google Now a virtual assistant either. Google Now is about automating your life and in return, making your life easier. Google Now does that by providing a vast amount of information, pertinent to you, at your fingertips. There’s just one catch though. Those of your that often go full tin foil hat mode really won’t [...]
