What is Voice search, and how do I use it on my Galaxy S4 Google™ Play edition?

The Voice Search feature is a voice-activated application that allows you to tell your device what to search for. It takes your spoken words, converts them to text, and executes a Google Search using the text. Try "find pizza" to find a pizza restaurant nearby. Working on a term paper on economics? Say "search economics" and get a listing of results on the topic.

Voice Search

To access Voice Search on your device:

1. Touch Apps > Voice Search . Or from any Home Screen, touch Speaker on the right side of the Google Search bar at the top of the screen.

2. The Speak now screen will display. Speak clearly into the microphone.

3. Voice search converts your spoken words to text quickly and conducts a Google™ Search based on what you said.
