We’ve seen Voice based search running on the Android devices, but now even Chrome browser gets the voice recognition extension. It’s not an official Google Extension, but the makers state that it’s as good as it can get. Though it’s on an experimental stage, it works kind of alright with a microphone and some clearly-speaking-into-the-mouthpiece skills.
And yes, it works on all kinds of searches, not just on the main address bar, for instance check out the Voice icon on the YouTube search bar. It comes with some stock search extensions, but you can add your own custom search pages too, and then that would show the Voice Icon on that particular search bar too. As I mentioned before that this is in experimental stages, so in some cases you might need to add a switch “enable-voice-input” to the browsers target shortcut.
