One of the fascinating features in Microsoft Edge is the integration of the voice-activated search assistant, Cortana. But unfortunately Microsoft, Google also has “OK, Google“, also the voice-activated search, not only Chrome but also for iPhone/iPad and Android as well.
To activate “OK, Google” in Chrome, click Chrome Menu , go to Settings. Then in the Search section, check the option “Enable “OK Google” to start a voice search“.
If there is a yellow warning sign like above, that means you either don’t have microphone on your computer or the microphone isn’t configured properly.
Once everything is all set, you will start using the voice search either on google.com or a new tab that has Google’s search embedded.
To tell if the microphone is listening your voice, simply look at the microphone icon,
That’s about it. Basically if you are using Chrome with Google as default search you are getting the similar experience as Microsoft Edge, in terms of voice search.
